Personal form

The Census Personal Form (online or paper) records details for one person only. It contains the same questions as the Census Household Form but excludes the questions related to the dwelling. It is used for people staying in a non-private dwelling such as a hotel, motel, hostel or nursing home. It is also used when a private dwelling requests an additional form (e.g. large households or an individual wants to keep their responses private) and the household has already completed a household form.

See also Household form.
