2011 Census of Population and Housing

2011 Census of Population and Housing - Public Consultation process withdrawn

In light of recent changes to the ABS work program we regret to advise that the public consultation process for the 2011 Census of Population and Housing will not continue. As a result, the questions for the 2011 Census will be comparable to those asked in 2006. This action will not compromise the integrity and quality of ABS Census data.

The invitation to have a say in the way the nation's largest statistical collection is undertaken was contained in the Information Paper: 2011 Census of Population and Housing: ABS Views on Content and Procedures (cat. no. 2007.0).The paper covers the type of questions that may be included on the Census form and the procedures to be used. It also explains ABS arrangements to protect the privacy of individuals and the confidentiality of the information supplied by them.

The views of users, along with advice from the Australian Statistics Advisory Council, are important and submissions already received will be reconsidered as part of the consultation process post 2011.
