Classifications Index
The Classifications Index provides a ready reference to all variables available from the 2016 Census. The index can be sorted one column at a time by clicking on the column title. It can be sorted by mnemonic, description, release phase or category. Note changes to the release phases and terminology for them, for the 2016 Census:

  • June release - The majority of data items, on most geographies, will be available in June 2017.
  • October release - The data items which are more complex and time consuming to code, including occupation and industry, employment and population mobility will be released in October 2017.
