If you haven’t filled Census then do it by final tomorrow the 23rd of September

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is wrapping up the formal collection period for the 2016 Census tomorrow, Friday 23 September, so if you haven’t yet, please complete your Census now.

The Census can be quickly and easily completed online with your 12-digit Login or send your paper form back in the provided Reply Paid envelope.

Head of the 2016 Census Program, Duncan Young, said people can still contact us if they have questions, and receive a paper form if they need one, once the online system has closed.

“Paper forms will continue to be accepted as they make their way back via return mail,” Mr Young said.

“Around 95 per cent of households have completed the Census,” he said.

“Census data influences Federal funding to States, Territories and local governments.

“Your participation is essential to the future of your community. Without this information, the government, organisations and community groups aren’t able to plan and provide vital services for you, your community and your area.

“Census data is used to inform decision and policy making in every area across Australia. It shows population growth and demographics to help plan investment in schools and day care facilities for children, aged care services for the elderly, hospitals and transport.

“Importantly, Census data shows how we are changing as a society and where we are heading so we can plan appropriately to support our future.”

The Census is compulsory for everyone who was in Australia on Tuesday August 9, Census night.

For assistance complete the Online Inquiry form on  census.abs.gov.au or call the Census Inquiry Service between 8.00am and 8.00pm daily on 1300 214 531. This phone line will be open Friday, 30 September.
