Dwelling non-response occurs when a private dwelling was identified as occupied on Census night but a Census form was not returned.
The dwelling non-response rate is calculated by dividing the number of non-responding dwellings by all private dwellings identified as occupied on Census night, and is expressed as a percentage.
The dwelling non-response rate excludes non-private dwellings.
