Peoples. Tuesday 9 August 2011 is Census night. Everyone is counted making the census much more than just an estimate. A small population makes it possible to literally record anonymous statistics about everyone.
Historical archives are valued and people have the option of giving permission to additionally have their names and some other personal things put on a data base for posterity.
One option is to use the eCensus via the internet. As it is, an attempt is made to provide everyone with a nine page census form to fill in, one way or another, and to personally collect them afterwards.
Census data is used to plan infastructure - among other things. A good deal of planning went into the Emergency facilities at the newish hospital - or did it - because it is into its third or fourth makeover, seen fenced off At least there is flexibility!
