Wow that is a lot of personal info being asked for.

I called up their hotline and asked if I really have to answer all of these questions, they admitted that not all are compulsory and asked which questions I have issues with. I tried to get through all questions to get a list of which ones are voluntary, but they talked to their supervisor and refused to tell me which ones are left.

I am just concerned about having so much personal details in a single database. In the wrong hands that is a data security nightmare.

If what some has said is true - that they have never filled out a census form then it would be likely that quite a few have managed not to fill them in - and there have been no consequences for many of them. It does then raise questions about the statistics gathered as they do not include information that the evaders would have otherwise included that may have changed the results.

One must also assume that many fill in false information and the statistics department would have no idea what is true and what is false so the results are not a true reflection of the situation in NZ.

Does anyone know what percentage of the population get away with not filling in the forms or fill in incorrect information?

The guide is clear that equally shared custody should only record the address on census night.
