2016 Census

Some of you asked about our plans for the 2016 Census. We anticipate that, subject to funding, you will be able to request Census data for customised regions, built up from Mesh Blocks. We will be retaining the Mesh Block coded data from the 2011 Census.

The ABS encourages the adoption of the ASGS (based on Mesh Blocks) by other organisations to increase the comparability of statistical information across Australia.

Planning for the 2016 Census is underway. Consultation for the 2016 Census will commence in late 2012.
