The Census of Population and Housing aims to accurately count the number of people in Australia, their key characteristics, and the dwellings in which they live.

It is conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) once every five years.

During the Census every household and person in the country is required to answer specific questions on the paper form or through eCensus online.


eCensus is a fast, easy and secure online option for completing your Census form.

Anyone who has a working internet connection can use the eCensus option. To complete the form using eCensus you will need:

- A Census Form Number
- A unique eCensus Number.

From the 29th of July, Census Collectors will commence delivery of Census information. If requested, a sealed eCensus envelope containing a unique eCensus Number will be provided to your household. If you haven't received an eCensus envelope by 7 August 2011, call the Census Inquiry Service. They can provide your Census Form Number and unique eCensus number, via SMS or mail.
