2013 Census forms and guide notes

2013 Census guide notes and forms

View the 2013 Census guide notes and samples of the census forms in the files above.

The 2013 Census forms are the same as the forms developed for the 2011 Census, with date changes only. There are no new topics or questions.

This means that the 2013 Census forms are also very similar to those used in the 2006 Census. We followed a strategy of minimal change to content, with changes focused on improving data quality while maintaining consistency with previous censuses.

Counting everyone in Canterbury

Since the 2010/11 earthquakes, the circumstances of many people living in Canterbury have changed considerably. As a result, we understand that some people may have difficulty answering certain questions on the 2013 Census forms.

To help Canterbury respondents complete their forms quickly and easily, and ensure we get the best quality data for the Canterbury region, we have developed additional help for respondents affected by the earthquakes.

Form design and content

Before each census, Statistics New Zealand reviews the forms and guide notes from the previous census. Reports from the review process before the 2011 Census, that are also applicable for the 2013 Census, include: 
2011 Census Form Design Report (December 2010)
2011 Census Content Report (October 2009).

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.
