How Australia Takes a Census


By Australian Bureau of Statistics (2006)

This publication gives a detailed outline how the 2006 Census will be conducted. The Census is the largest statistical collection undertaken by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and one of the most important. There are two broad objectives that underpin the Census. The first of these is to accurately measure the number and key characteristics of people in Australia on Census Night and the dwellings in which they live. The second is to provide timely, high quality and relevant data for small geographic areas and small population groups, to complement the rich but broad level data provided by ABS surveys. This publication describes the history of the Census, the process by which the 2006 Census was planned, the way it will be conducted and processed and the type of output that will be available (publication includes copies of household form and census guide).
