Census test


The next Census of Population and Housing will be conducted in August 2016. In preparation for the next national Census the ABS conducts several field tests to trial new delivery and collection procedures.

Between July and September 2014, approximately 100,000 households in selected areas of Western Australia and South Australia will be asked to participate in a Census field test. In the lead up to Census test night, Tuesday, 5 August 2014, most households within the test area will receive an instruction letter on how to participate in the Census.

More information on the test can be viewed by visiting the Census test website
