The aim of this paper is to assess the performance of each sequencing instruction, and to isolate particular instructions that have the greatest impact on data quality by measuring the type and frequency of errors occurring. This is the first comprehensive analysis of the performance of sequencing instructions and their effect on data quality in the Australian Census. It gives valuable insight into response behaviour in the complex sequence of labour force instructions.
