Data Processing Centre
The Data Processing Centre (DPC) is the central site where the capture and data entry of Census forms takes place. After Census forms have been completed on Census Night, they are collected and returned to the state distribution offices or sent directly to the DPC.
Located in Melbourne for the 2006 Census, the DPC employs approximately 1000 temporary staff during peak processing time.
