Australian Census 2021 takes place on 10 August 2021
The 2021 Census will be taking place on August 10.
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
Complete the census
Instructions will be delivered to households in early August. You can start your Census as soon as you receive them, if you know where you'll be on Census night, Tuesday August 10. You can complete it online or with the paper form. All personal information collected is kept safe and is not shared with anyone. You and your family can't be identified by the information you put on your Census.
Census video to watch
You can find a short video that explains how you can complete the Census. You can also find a video that explains the benefits of completing the Census. To complete your Census online or to find out more information, please visit the Australian statistics page. Or you can also call 1800 512 441 if you need help.
