Coming Soon: National Household Survey Data

February 28, 2014

The National Household Survey (NHS) began within four weeks of the May 2011 Census and included approximately 4.5 million households. The information collected by the NHS is intended to replace the data from the previous long-form census questionnaire. Although this voluntary questionnaire covered most of the same topics as the 2006 Census, the data collected will not be compatible with the data previously collected by the long form questionnaire and will not be of the same quality as the previous mandatory long form.
