2011 Census forms and guide notes

2011 Census forms and guide notes

Samples of the 2011 Census forms and guide notes can be viewed from the files above.

The 2011 Census forms are very similar to those used in the 2006 Census. For the 2011 Census we have followed a strategy of minimal change to content, with changes focused on improving data quality while maintaining consistency with previous censuses. The forms include no new topics or questions while the guide notes have been updated to provide better guidance to respondents. 

Before each census, Statistics New Zealand reviews the forms and guide notes from the previous census. Reports from this review process include:

The format of the ethnicity question has not changed from the 2006 Census. The Government Statistician made this decision in 2009 after research and consultation with the main users of census ethnicity information. Refer to the Review of the Official Ethnicity Statistical Standard for more information.
