Andrew Henderson, Census Executive Director and National Spokesperson said:

“With exactly 100 days to go it’s a good time to reflect on the enormous value the Census provides. It’s not just about counting people and households.”

Every census tells a story about Australia – its past, present and future.

The census stats show various communities growth and things that are needed to help them continue to grow.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has been preparing to deliver a Census that helps ensure everyone in Australia has an opportunity to participate.

ABS is providing more options for people to complete their Census this year.

People will be able to fill in their forms online, on phone, tablet, or laptop, or use the traditional paper form if they prefer.

This will provide the much needed flexibility to understand and fill a form at a time that best suits a person.

Mr Henderson adds:

“We also have a lot of support in place to provide people with any extra help they need. This includes our Census field staff, phone and online services, Census information hubs in public places to answer peoples’ questions and translated material.”

The Census is obviously a very big job for ABS and they are as always ready for it.
