  • About this Release

Census Fact Sheets are a quick reference product designed to assist in the use and interpretation of 2011 Census data. They provide a summary of conceptual and data issues, and changes that have occurred since the last Census. Most Fact Sheets focus on either a complex question on the Census form, or a particular output variable.

Data Quality Statements contain the non-response rate for each Census variable, and a brief outline of any known data quality issues that affect data published from the 2011 Census.

Non-response rates are available for Persons, Items and Dwellings to assist in the use and interpretation of Census data. Non-response rate tables are available for each state and territory, and the whole of Australia (including Other Territories). These tables are available for Persons by Usual Residence and Place of Enumeration, and for Dwellings by Place of Enumeration.
