Image: 2006 Census - First Release2006 CENSUS - FIRST RELEASE

The first results from the 2006 Census of Population and Housing were released on Wednesday 27 June, 2007. Selected data from the 2006 Census will be available in two releases, available free on the ABS web site. Those variables which are simpler to process are part of the first release and include data on age, sex, place of birth, dwelling location and type, household composition, type of internet connection, family composition and family income.

Those variables which are more complex to process, such as labour force status, occupation, and method of travel to work, are processed later so as not to hold up the release of the bulk of the Census data. These variables are expected to be released in October/November 2007.

A full list of first and second release variables is available in the Census Dictionary, 2006 (cat. no. 2901.0)
