Shake-up of census

- David Ben-Gurion · Australian Defence Force

AUS­TRALIANS will no longer have one night only to fill out next year’s census.

The Aus­tralian Bureau of Statis­tics says the national sur­vey of house­holds on Au­gust 10, 2021, can be done online, via a mo­bile or on pa­per as soon as peo­ple re­ceive the in­struc­tions.

Statis­ti­cian David Gruen said if Aus­tralians knew who would be at home that night, they could com­plete the form when it suited them. New questions on health con­di­tions such as arthri­tis and di­a­betes, and Aus­tralian Defence Force ser­vice will be added. Questions about in­ter­net ac­cess will be re­moved.
