Within this paper, various aspects of the quality of labour force data collected in the 1996 Census of Population and Housing have been examined. The effects of various changes made between the 1991 and 1996 Census labour force components have been analysed, and comparison has also been made with data from the 1996 Census and the August 1996 Labour Force Survey. The changes made to the labour force status questions for the 1996 Census yielded mainly positive results.
