2006 Census of Population and Housing - Product Brief
CENSUS FACT SHEETS - cat. no. 2906.0
Census Fact Sheets are a quick reference product, one to two pages long, designed to assist in the use and interpretation of Census data. They provide a summary of conceptual and data issues, and any changes that have occurred since the last Census.
Most Fact Sheets focus on either a new or complex question on the Census form, or a particular output variable, such as family composition.
The ABS initiates the development of some Fact Sheets. Others are written in response to a high number of enquiries about a particular topic. Suggestions for topics are also welcome.
Fact sheets are aimed at all users of Census data.
Fact sheets will be available as an Acrobat document on the ABS web site.
Individual Fact Sheets will be published progressively.
