Welcome to the Media Centre for the Census of Population and Housing. Here you will find a range of media releases, fact sheets and images.

The Census gives us a snapshot of Australia at a particular point in time that helps us understand more about our communities and how we live.

Census data is available free of charge at the ABS website using a range of easy-to-use products.

For media inquiries, interviews or image and footage requests, please contact 1300 175 070, 8:30am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday (Canberra time).

For data requests, including orders for customised data, please call the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070, or email client.services@abs.gov.au.
