Collecting the forms
Paper forms
Your census collector will collect your brown dwelling form and your blue
individual forms after census night. This is the same person who delivered
them to you. The collector will wear a Statistics NZ identity card with their
photograph and name. They will carry a blue bag with the Statistics NZ logo. If you are worried about the person who delivers and collects your forms, call the helpline free:
0800 CENSUS (0800 236 787)
If you don’t want the collector to read your forms you can ask for a privacy
envelope or complete the forms online.
The forms will be collected between Wednesday, 6 March and Sunday, 17 March. If your collector cannot contact you to collect your forms they will leave a freepost envelope. You can request a freepost envelope by calling
the helpline toll-free on 0800 CENSUS (0800 236 787).
Internet
Remember, to complete census forms on the Internet you need two numbers:
1. The Internet Access Code for your household, and
2. The Internet ID.
If everyone in your household has completed census forms on the Internet, the collector may not come back.
After census day, destroy the envelope with the Internet Access Code, and destroy any paper forms you did not use.
If you have relatives or friends in your house on census night and they filled in blue individual forms on the Internet, you put their details in Question 6 of your brown dwelling form. Destroy their blue paper forms too.
English Language Partners New Zealand 2013 CENSUS WORKBOOK AND TEACHER’S NOTES | 49
Talk about these questions.
If you have visitors or relatives in your home on census night, how will they
complete their blue individual forms?
If they want to fill in their blue individual form on the Internet, they need two numbers. What are these numbers?
What Internet Access Code do your visitors use if they fill in their blue individual
form on the Internet?
If your visitors fill in their blue individual forms on paper, what happens to the forms?
If your visitors fill in their blue individual forms on the Internet, what should you
do with their blue paper forms?
