Alternative census forms

Creative types across the country have put fingers to keyboard to make some alternative census forms for anyone to use. They focus on the sort of questions that we should be asking.

Exhibit A: a sheet of supplementary questions made by the lovely folks at Indymedia. It could be used as a cover sheet for those filling out the census, or a substitute for those that are boycotting — they even made suggestions for cover letters. In the words of the creator, “please free free to print and distribute the attached publicity in your local area”.

Exhibit B: a fake form for people to download, print out, and fill in with your own questions and answers. It comes complete with information about the Count Me Out campaign. Again, you could use it as a supplement to or replacement for your census form.

If you’re interested, the address is “FREEPOST 2011 Census, Processing Centre, UK”. The possibilities are endless!
