On 23 October 2017 the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) will release the second round of data from the 2016 Census of Population and Housing. This release will include data on occupation and employment, education, interstate migration and how we travel to work.

We will be hosting a free Seminar on the second release Census data topics in Canberra on 24 October 2017.

First release Seminars

Following the first release of 2016 Census data on 27 June 2017, the ABS hosted 32 Census Data Seminars across 26 locations in Australia. The free information sessions revealed what the 2016 Census of Population and Housing tells us about ourselves, our communities and Australia.

The Seminars gave an overview of the first release of 2016 Census results at the national and local level, as well as data quality findings. Data specialists were also available after the presentation to provide Census data product support and guidance. Almost 2,000 data enthusiasts attended or streamed the sessions online.

First release capital city Seminars were webcast and are now available, with captions, to view on the ABS YouTube channel.

Download presentation slides and fact sheets from the first release Seminars at the 2016 Census Data Seminar Presentations page.
