Stress can play a big part in financial worries amongst families, and therefore placing strain on family relationships and causing disharmony amongst family members and amongst the community, resulting in negative national consequences. WE WILL BUILD STRONG PROACTIVE COMBINED COMMUNITIES to educate the community about ways we can overcome hardship to keep our families and community united as ONE. Education can help those that are in need, and with the support of the many "experts" in the field of various assistance, we can come up with a plan that will help. With the assistance of finance companies (banks), insurance companies,investment advisers and the many more who can assist , we can offer relief to our communities, and still maintain a healthy and strong Northland. Together Everyone Achieves More, ensuring that our people in the community come first and that they all know who they can turn to in times of "greater need." We can help build a stronger and more economical community-going forward. Let us pool our ideas to create something better for all of us. It's a matter of numbers Counting heads: South Hokianga district census supervisor Jo Crowley at her Waimamaku property. The government's five-yearly count of people and dwellings is on March 8. Census workers will begin delivering census forms to households from Friday. Northern News spoke to census supervisor for the South Hokianga district Jo Crowley. What is census? The official count of people and dwellings in New Zealand. Who runs census? Statistics New Zea- land is the government department responsible for running the census. It collects and supplies official facts and figures about New Zealand com- munities, businesses and the economy. Who has to fill in census forms? Everyone in New Zea- land on March 8 has to fill out a form -- even newborn babies and cruise ship passengers have to be counted. Why should I fill in a census form? How will it benefit my com- munity? Information from the census helps determine how many billions of dollars of government funding are spent in New Zealand, such as for health, schooling, road- ing and transport. It is used by councils, com- munity groups, iwi and businesses to plan for our future. What are the benefits for North- land? The government will have an accurate record of what services North- land needs. For example, funding for health services, hospitals, schools, kohanga reo, roads, transport and rec- reational facilities. Who uses statistics? Everyone has access to statistics, including councils, community groups, iwi and busi- nesses. Check out the website www.stats. govt.nz for interesting statistics about your area. How private is my information? The information you provide must be kept confidential. All Stat- istics NZ staff, including collectors, sign secrecy declarations. The infor- mation collected is used for statistical purposes only. For example, eth- nicity information is used to measure edu- cational needs and achievements of ethnic groups. Income infor- mation can be used to establish decile ratings for schools. There is never a link between a name and the infor- mation supplied. No other organisation, including the Police, Inland Revenue, WINZ and Immigration, can obtain information from Statistics NZ that ident- ifies you. What are the main reasons people don't want to fill in census forms? Big Brother'' fears Invasion of privacy Don't want to hand forms to a collector Fear of any infor- mation being shared between other companies None of the above should be a concern because no information is shared with other organisations. A person will never be identified by the infor- mation given. I haven't got a per- mit for my garage and my partner is living with me while on the DPB. Should I be worried when the col- lector calls? No. A collector is only there to deliver census forms. No personal infor- mation from census forms is shared with any other organisation. All collectors sign secrecy declarations and any- thing else a collector may see or hear is none of our business''. HowdoIfillinmy forms? A collector (or enumer- ator) will deliver your forms to your home and discuss the best way for you to fill them in. If necessary, they will return at an assigned time to collect them. There are four ways you can fill in your forms: Online (internet) Ask your collector for a self-stamped Statistics NZ envelope and post your forms to Statistics NZ yourself Return your forms to your collector in a sealed, privacy envelope when they call back Return your com- pleted forms to your col- lector. Who are the collectors? Collectors are people from within your own community who all want to make a difference -- while also earning an extra income. They are people just like you and me doing a job to ensure their region puts its hand up for a share of crucial funding. How will I recognise them? Your collector will wear a Statistics New Zealand identity card with their photograph and name on it. They will carry a blue bag with the Statistics NZ logo. When will they visit? Between February 18 and March 7 to deliver forms and from March 9 to 27 to collect them. DoIhavetofillin census forms? Yes. Filling in census forms is required by law.
