This page provides 2011 Census fact sheets which are designed to assist in the use and interpretation of Census data.

They provide a summary of conceptual and data issues, and changes that have occurred since the last Census. Most fact sheets focus on either a complex question on the Census form, or a particular output variable. There are also fact sheets that are based around geography or enumeration procedures.
