Stories from the 2016 Census

The 2016 Census was an exciting period of time, with the results revealing a great deal of information of who we are as a nation. For many of us though, digging through all the hard coded numbers and endless tables of data is not easy - thankfully that's not the only way to access the information. Interesting articles have been written, colourful infographics have been drawn and stories using the data have been told to give a helpful overview of the Census.
