YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS - QUESTIONS 1, 2 & 8
WHY ARE THEY ASKED?
We use names in the collection process so that Collectors can talk to you and address you correctly and to help us work out the different families in each household.
Addresses are also used to show how many people live in particular areas.
Both names and addresses are needed for a small survey which will be run soon after the Census to check whether we missed anyone.
The ABS does not keep people's names and addresses once statistical processing is completed. For those who agree in Question 60, name-identified Census information will be provided to the National Archives of Australia for release after 99 years (see Time Capsule for further information).
HOW TO ANSWER
Q2 Include everyone who spent the night at this dwelling on Census Night, Tuesday 8 August 2006. If a member of your household did not spend Census Night in this dwelling they should be included at Q53.
If a baby in the household has not yet been given a name, write ‘BABY’ instead of a first name.
Shift workers who spent the night of Tuesday 8 August 2006 at work, but returned home to this dwelling on Wednesday 9 August 2006 should be included at Q2.
Q8 Where a person usually lives is the address where they have lived, or intend to live, for a total of six months or more in 2006.
If a person has not lived at the same place for 6 months or more in 2006, and does not intend to do so, write ‘NONE’ in the ‘Suburb/Locality’ box.
