There’s still time to complete your Census if you haven’t already done so. You will not be fined for completing the Census after Census night.
The Census produces important data vital to providing evidence-based policy, programs and services that help plan for Australia’s future.
The ABS took their system down on Census night as a precautionary step to protect Australians’ data.
The Census online form is running smoothly and securely and your data is safe.
If you haven’t already done so, please complete it online or in paper form as soon as possible. Australians with a Census log-in letter who would like to order a paper form can call the automated paper form request service on 1300 820 275 (open 24 hours).
If you haven’t received your household’s Census materials, an ABS Field Officer will visit you soon.
More information is available on the Census website www.census.abs.gov.au.
