2018 census consultation

Ask the Statistics Department to Keep Unpaid Activities in the 2018 Census Content

The Statistics Department are currently consulting until June 30th on which questions to ask in the next census in 2018.  We encourage you to express your views and to take part in this consultation on their website www.stats.govt.nz/Census/2018-census. On this website they have listed 8 criteria to determine which questions to ask. The most important are: Does the proposed question add value to New Zealand’s society and economy? And will the proposed question produce quality information?

ADCOSS is seeking to keep the question on unpaid activities and add questions on housing and transport relevant to Auckland.

More information about our thoughts will be in the next ADCOSS newsletter.  In the mean time have your say.
