Boarding school student

Boarders at school or college are specifically asked to record the address of the school or college as their usual residence, if they intend to live for a total of 6 months or more at the school or college. This instruction was not given in Censuses prior to 1986 and often these people incorrectly reported their family home as their place of usual residence.
