"Census at School" project

Engage students from grades 4 to 12 in statistical enquiry

"Census at School is an international online project that engages students from grades 4 to 12 in statistical enquiry. Students anonymously fill in an online survey in class. They answer non-confidential questions about topics such as their height, the time it takes to travel to school, and their favourite subject at school.

"None of the survey questions asks for confidential or identifiable personal information. Responses remain anonymous as no names or identification numbers are attached to them.

"This project combines fun with learning. They discover how to use and interpret data about themselves as part of their classroom learning in math, social sciences or information technology. They also learn about the importance of the national census in providing essential information for planning education, health, transportation and many other services.
