Counting you will make a big difference to what happens in and for your community. So please make sure you count yourself in on the 2021 Census on 10 August.
Every five years, the Australian Bureau of Statistics counts every person and home in Australia. This is called the Census of Population and Housing. This year, the Census is on Tuesday 10 August.
The information you provide is used to inform important decisions about transport, schools, health care, infrastructure and business.
It also helps plan local services for individuals, families and communities. For example, knowing the number of people living in regional and remote areas informs where doctors are needed, and understanding local births and languages spoken at home links Australians to the community services they need.
There are also job opportunities to help communities be counted.
