ABS Census Data - Snapshots, Community Profiles and more

Held every 5 years, the ABS Census counts close to 10 million households and approximately 24 million people. Census questions range from marriage status, family size and occupation, to languages spoken, country of birth and ancestry. The most recent Census was conducted in August 2016 and the first results will be released in April 2017. The data is based on geography and is used to inform government policies and planning.

Search the Census Quick Stats for a summary; or Community Profiles for more detailed excel tables for your chosen geographic area. When selecting a geography choose the Indigenous Location to focus on Indigenous statistics for that area.
