Usual Address One Year Ago Indicator (UAI1P)
This variable records whether a person lived in the same address one year ago as their current usual residence, whether they lived elsewhere in Australia one year ago, or whether they usually lived in another country one year ago. This variable is applicable for all usual residents of Australia, except for persons aged less than one year.
Data for this variable is derived from the question of where the person usually lived one year ago. An image of this question is provided below.
The responses to this question are captured automatically from mark box responses on the form. Where the indicator mark boxes have been left blank by a respondent but they have reported an address one year ago, Usual Address One Year Ago Indicator is derived based on the address reported. If the respondent does not report either the indicator or the address, they will be set to not stated. However, where a person who is aged under 16 years (i.e. they were aged under 15 years one year ago) does not respond to the usual address one year ago question, but their parent(s) did respond, their Usual Address One Year Ago Indicator is set to the same value as their parent.
The majority of item non-response is attributable to the people who did not respond to the Census at all. Refer to item non-response rates for more information. The second and smaller contributor to item non-response is when people return a Census form but may not answer a particular question(s). For more information, refer to Understanding Census data quality.
