Everyone in Australia at Census time needs to be counted in the Census, excluding foreign diplomats and their families, no matter where they may be sleeping on Census Night. To achieve this, the ABS has developed a strategy to obtain the best possible enumeration of people, no matter where they are sleeping. Some aspects of this strategy include engaging special collectors to count people sleeping rough on a special interview based form, and providing the ability for people to respond to the usual residence question as 'none' if they have no usual residence.
Data from the 2006 Census concerning homeless people were published in Australian Census Analytical Program: Counting the Homeless, 2006 (cat. no. 2050.0).
