Australian Citizenship (CITP)

This variable records whether a person has Australian Citizenship.

The non-response rate for Australian Citizenship (CITP) was 6.0% (6.7% in 2006). More information is available from the 2011 Census non-response quality statement.

The responses to this question are captured automatically from mark box responses on the form so the risk of processing error is minimal. Sample checks are undertaken to ensure an acceptable level of quality. In a small proportion of cases (testing has indicated that this is less than 1%), respondents provided an incorrect number of responses (for CITP, respondents were asked to only mark one response). In these cases, responses were accepted in the order they appeared on the form and the extra responses were rejected.

More information on CITP is available in the 2011 Census Dictionary (cat. no. 2901.0)
