Census Quality Survey (Rehearsal)

Related links
The Census 2001 Quality report for England and Wales, published on Nov 29th 2005, provides a broad range of information about Census quality, and includes summary information about the Census Quality Survey (CQS). The Survey was carried out in 1999 to provide information about the accuracy of responses to the Rehearsal version of the 2001 Census form. A sample of households were asked to complete the form and interviewers later called on respondents to check the accuracy of their responses to the form and record comments on how the questions were answered. This report provides a basis for understanding the reasons for incorrect answers and highlights the impact which the CQS had on reorganising the questions on Qualifications and Carers for the main 2001 Census.
