Australian Bureau of Statistics will be conducting Australia’s next Census on Tuesday, 9th August 2016.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics has a long and proud history of Census taking in Australia and the 2016 Census will be the seventeenth national Census of Population and Housing.
The 2016 Census will introduce significant changes to the way the Census is conducted, with a move to a digital-first approach. Australia’s first predominantly digital Census will be faster, more efficient and easier for the public.
The topics covered in the Census will remain stable in 2016, repeating those included in 2006 and 2011. The Australian Bureau of Statistics will continue to look for opportunities to integrate Census data with other datasets to increase the range of insights provided and ensure the Census delivers maximum benefit to governments and the community.
The first data from the Census will be pubished in 2017. For information on all data published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, please refer to the ABS website at www.abs.gov.au
