The objective of the Field Procedures Test is to test a number of changes proposed for administrative and for field collection activities. This live test is used to validate the behaviour of field staff when using the new procedures, systems and tools and the results will be used to recommend required system changes where feasible. The test will be conducted with Census and National Household Survey questionnaires. The information may also be used by Statistics Canada for other statistical and research purposes.
