ABSTRACT
The authors reflect on the new voluntary National Household Survey in Canada proposed by the Cabinet under the government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. They argue that the new census will not be as usable as the old long-form census, which enabled researchers to investigate social and health trends. An overview of the National Household Survey in collecting variable information is offered. The authors suggest that Statistics Canada should abide by strict privacy laws and regulations.
