Topic Selection for the Australian Census of Population and Housing

Abstract:
We describe how topics were selected for the Australian Census of Population and Housing. Australia has adopted an open assessment of topics submitted by users and the general public and then performed field tests of difficult or sensitive questions. For the 1986 Census, special attention was given to the development of a census question on ethnic origin.

Keywords:
Census; topic; evaluation.
