What is the Census?
Every five years, the Australian Bureau of Statistics counts every person and home in Australia. We call this the Census of Population and Housing.
The Census is the most comprehensive snapshot of the country and tells the story of how we are changing. It includes around 10 million households and over 25 million people. Census data tells us about the economic, social and cultural make-up of the country.
Governments and businesses use the information you give us to:
Census night is Tuesday 10 August 2021 and you can find more about it here.
