Sneak peek at questions for CensusAtSchool 2013
Tens of thousands of school children will be taking part once again, and here’s a sneak peek of some of the new questions they’ll be answering:
Which of the following food allergies* do you have? (You may tick more than one.)
- cow’s milk (dairy)
- tree nuts (e.g. cashews, almonds, Brazil nuts)
- fish or shellfish
- Other. Please state:
About how long did you spend on your homework last night? (If you did not do any last night, type 0.)
Who is your favorite singer or band? (If you do not have one, type “Don’t have one”)
This year on 5 March, we all filled in a Census of Population and Dwellings form. Have a guess at what New Zealand’s population was on that date:
Preliminary results will be available from May 9.
* Interestingly, New Zealand has no prevalence data on food allergies.
