2001 Census Data - the untold stories

With Australia's next Census of Population and Housing occurring in August 2001, the ABS plans to maximise the use of census data with the proposed introduction of an exciting initiative: the Australian Census Analytic Program. It is anticipated that this Program will foster issue-driven research leading to the publication of important, but previously unrevealed, information that incorporates 2001 Census data.

The Program will build upon a concept originally developed by Statistics Canada. Under the Australian Census Analytic Program, social science researchers will be encouraged to participate in research, analysis and publication activity which significantly advances contemporary understanding of our country's social, cultural and economic environment.

The Occasional Paper: Counting the Homeless, Implications for Policy Development ( cat. no. 2041.0) is one example where co-operative arrangements between the ABS and a researcher have delivered outstanding results.

The ABS is currently organising the initial consultation phase of the Program. Expressions of interest in the production of census monographs will be sought from universities, academics and other organisations. Responses to these consultations will be assessed, together with feedback on potential topics of interest from the wider user community, to determine the Program's potential to deliver benefits for all Australians.
