Years at Usual Residence - 2001 Census

Description

Length of time up to the date of the data collection, expressed in completed years, that a respondent has lived at their usual residence. --

Variable name: Years at Usual Residence Definition: Years at Usual Residence is the length of time up to the date of the data collection, expressed in completed years (including short-term absences, but excluding long-term absences), that a respondent has lived at their usual residence. Questionnaire: Individual form question 6. Subject population: Census Night Population Count.
Non-response: Non response rate is 4.4%. (1996 - 5.1%) Quality level: Years at Usual Residence is a supplementary variable. Comparability with previous census data: This question is a single response field, however some respondents have provided multiple responses to the question. In 2001 the response of 'Less than one year' was inflated as the priority rule for multiple response was to take the tick box (no operator intervention) in preference to the numeric response. The procedure for multiple response was different in 1996 as it was checked by an operator who determined the most appropriate response. Despite the different actions the data for both 1996 and 2001 is comparable, with 23.3% and 23.1% respectively being coded to 'Less than one year' at Usual Residence. Things to be aware of: There are some inconsistencies between this variable when combined with Age, Usual Residence Five Years Ago or Years Since Arrival in New Zealand, as there were no consistency edits applied to the data.
