Variable name: Unpaid Activities Definition: The 2001 Census activities question is used to provide information on the level of unpaid work that is carried out in New Zealand and also to provide an indication of the number of people participating in education and training. Questionnaire: Individual form question 41 Subject population: Census Night Population Count aged 15 years and over. Non-response: Non-response in 2001 (8.7%) was midway between the non-reponse to the two 1996 questions (7.5% and 9.8%) Quality level: This variable is supplementary quality. Comparability with previous census data: This is a new question and different to the questions on activities (asked in 1991) and to the series of questions on unpaid and voluntary work and participation in education and training asked in 1996. Time series analysis on this data is not recommended.
Things to be aware of: The results from the census differ from the Time Use Survey in that the level of participation is much lower than that found in the Time-Use Survey. Reassuring is the fact that the pattern of unpaid work in the two collections is very similar (ie what is high in one is also high in the other).
Users of this data need to be aware that people can tick more than one box.
