Planning for the 2016 Census of Population and Housing is underway, and the ABS invites you to have your say.

On 6 November 2012, the ABS will release a publication proposing directions for Australia's 17th national Census, to be held in 2016.

The publication (2016 Census of Population and Housing: Consultation on content and procedures – ABS cat. no. 2007.0) will outline initial ABS views on topics and procedures for the 2016 Census.

To coincide with this publication release, the ABS will also begin a consultation process with Census data users and the general public. The consultation process includes:

  • public information sessions where the ABS will present proposed directions for 2016
  • a submission period where interested parties can formally submit their feedback and suggestions to the ABS via an online submission form.
