Personal form

The Census personal form records details for one person only. It contains the same questions as the household form, but excludes the household questions.

The personal form is used:
    • for households with more than six people: the household form accommodates six people, so one personal form is completed for each extra person;
    • for privacy: if any person in a household prefers, for privacy reasons, not to be recorded on the household form, then a personal form and a privacy envelope are issued for that person; and
    • in non-private dwellings: one personal form is completed for each person in a non-private dwelling on Census Night.

See also Household form.
