The data collected from the Census is used to inform decisions on issues that touch our lives every day, from schools, healthcare, transport and infrastructure to local services for individuals, families and communities. Every household and person in Australia on Census night must be included, including visitors to Australia, international students and babies.

Under the Census and Statistics Act 1905, the Australian Statistician can issue you a Notice of Direction, which directs you in writing to complete the Census
