Filling in the 2011 census - again!
Pop quiz - how many times can you fill in the same census schedule? Try three...!
On census day recently I filled out the paper version of the 2011 Scottish census, from which I then copied out the details to submit the information online. I've now just spent 5 minutes at the door being asked much of the questions again as part of a census survey! Apparently some 50,000 people are still missing from the returns, and so this survey is asking much of the same questions again to check on the accuracy of the original forms, in case households have misunderstood how to fill them in.
In the year 2111 let Scotland learn from many sources that the Paton household once lived in Largs, North Ayrshire! lol :)
