The five-yearly Census provides critical data and information to support important Australian decisions by governments, community organisations, businesses and individuals.The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is reviewing the information collected in the 2021 Census of Population and Housing to ensure it best meets the nation’s needs.

A public consultation seeks input from data users, community groups and organisations on their data needs and the most useful information to collect in the 2021 Census.

The ABS will assess any changes suggested through the submission process based on evidence and demonstrated need. They will seek to minimise the burden on the community by managing the number and complexity of questions asked in the Census.

Consultation closes: 30 June 2018.
