Census takers will be going door to door starting April 1. The purpose of the census is to gather information on the total number of residents, home owners, pre-school children, and type of school system support. This year we will also be asking a question around the mode of transporation used to get to work. This question will help the City's transportation team monitor progress of the Calgary Transportation Plan.
It's important to note that all census takers wear a photo identification badge issued by the City of Calgary. If you're not at home when the census taker comes to your home, a note will be left with information on how to provide your information over the phone.
All personal information provided is secure. The information that is released doesn't identify individuals and homes, but rather geographic areas such as community statistics. The results of the 2014 census will be available approximately three months after information collection has been completed.
