  • The ABS seeks your feedback about the Census Lesson Guides and activities
  • About this Release

    The Census Lesson guides are for anyone who wants to educate others about the Census: what it is, why it's important, and how they can take part. The activities focus strongly on the skills that students with English as an additional language need to master. They will suit :

    • students learning English, including those attending migrant English programs or adult literacy programs
    • culturally and linguistically diverse and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in upper primary and secondary schools and at TAFEs
    • any context where people want to learn about Australian culture - for example at community centres and mothers' groups.
There are 3 main themes covered in the Lesson Guides:
  1. What is the Census?
  2. How the Census helps people.
  3. How do I fill in the Census form?

Each theme is supported with accompanying activities.

To help us improve future support resources, there is a short survey where you can provide your feedback
