Census 2006 Update

The 2006 Census was officially launched in Canberra on 24 July to herald the start of the delivery of Census forms nationally on 28 July.

A total of 1.5 million forms will be delivered to one million households in WA by Census Night on 8 August. Collectors are due to pick them all up by 28 August. In preparation for the Census, over the past few months 3,000 field staff have been recruited throughout the state. The booming economic climate in WA made the recruitment task quite difficult in the far north of the state. Northern District Manager Graham Walker and Perth office staff had to use all their experience to encourage Collectors to join up in the Kimberley and Pilbara.
