APPENDIX 1: 2011 CENSUS HOUSEHOLD FORM QUESTIONS

Below are the 2011 Census Household Form Questions grouped by topic. The questions and topics have been grouped into the broad categories outlined in the November 2012 ABS Consultation information paper, Census of Population and Housing: Consultation on Content and Procedures, 2016 (cat. no. 2007.0); that is: topics recommended for retention, topics to be reviewed and topics recommended for exclusion. Potential new topics are not included. The majority of the questions are from the 2011 Census Household Form but where this is not the case, for example when collected by Census Field Officers, this has been noted.
