Nova Scotians Encouraged to Complete National Household Survey

first_imgAs part of Census 2011, one-third of Nova Scotian households are now being asked to provide more detailed information through the National Household Survey. “I’d strongly encourage all Nova Scotians who receive the survey to fill it out,” said Finance Minister Graham Steele. “The information collected in the National Household Survey provides a portrait of our province and helps government plan and deliver vital services like education, roads and housing.” The yellow survey package that one-third of Nova Scotian households will receive contains the questionnaire, a secure access code, and information on how to complete the survey. The National Household Survey can be filled out online using the secure access code or on a paper questionnaire that is returned to Statistics Canada. The National Household Survey includes questions on citizenship and immigration, ethnic origin, Aboriginal identity, language of work, education, labour market activity, child care and support payments, income and housing as well as a question asking for consent to release the personal information collected to Library and Archives Canada after 92 years.
