2 Persons imputed into dwelling
@ Not applicable
More information about imputation can be found in the 2016 Census Dictionary.
This variable was first used in the 2006 Census. The categories for this item were changed for 2016 due to the changes in dwelling enumeration.
Non-response rate only applies to data items that directly reflect responses to individual Census form questions. This imputation flag does not have a non-response rate as it is used to indicate whether the number of males and females were imputed during Census processing for applicable households. For more information, refer to Understanding Census data quality.
Data usage notes
In previous Censuses field officers would collect information on number of males and females in residence during their visits to the dwelling. This information would be recorded in their collector record books and could be used instead of imputation in the event that there was no response from the dwelling. This information was not collected during the 2016 census and if a dwelling did not respond the only option was to impute the number of males and females based on similar dwellings. This flag is set during census processing.
