National Household Survey now underway
OTTAWA – The National Household Survey (NHS) is underway. Statistics Canada
announced today that 4.5 million Canadian households are being asked to participate.
The information collected is vital to communities for planning services, such as child
care, schooling, family services, housing, roads and public transportation, and skills
training for employment.
Households can fill in the NHS questionnaire online by using their secure access code.
It’s easy and secure. Or, they can complete a paper questionnaire.
Yellow packages, containing a questionnaire, information on how to complete the NHS
and the secure access code are being delivered to each selected household.
Respondents who need more information can call the Help Line at 1-877-308-2777.
TTY users may call 1-866-753-7083.
The NHS includes questions on citizenship and immigration, ethnic origin, Aboriginal
identity, language of work, education, labour market activity, child care and support
payments, income and housing as well as a question asking for consent to release the
personal information collected to Library and Archives Canada after 92 years.
Statistics Canada strongly encourages selected households to complete the NHS
so communities will have the information they need to make decisions.
For more information, contact Media Relations at 613-951-4636.
