Minister of Statistics Maurice Williamson admits the New Zealand 2010 Census dress rehearsal is voluntary, but the Census collectors are NOT going to tell the public this so the public will be giving away their personal details when they don't legally have to:

The census dress rehearsal is used to test procedures and forms to ensure that the 2011 Census is a success.

People in 8,000 households from five districts will be asked to take part in the dress rehearsal. Taking part in the dress rehearsal is voluntary.

The census dress rehearsal will be held on 9 March 2010.Source: 2010 Census Dress Rehearsal (http://aboutcensus.census.govt.nz/about-census/2010-census-dress-rehearsal.aspx)


8000 people being asked from five districts is hardly something to get your knickers in a twist over. :rolleyes:


BTW, you do realise this is a primarily a computer forum and not your personal blog? Your posting history doesn't seem to suggest this ...

Regional census information was THE PRIMARY TOOL USED BY HIMMLER AND EICHMAN TO PERPRETRATE THE HOULACAST.

Read: IBM AND THE HOULACAST.

Far too much information is collected by cencus, and regularly abused by hairy legged bureaucrat's.

Not informing the citizens involved, that they are not Legally required to participate in a dry run, is a violation of their personal rights and privacy.

Not that the hairy legged statistics bureaucrat's would care about something simple like that.:angry
