What stories does the Census tell us about our national and our community? (Stage 3, Stage 4, Stage 5)

On Demand

Census data is used to plan services that impact our lives, including schools, health care, transport and infrastructure. It also plans local support for individuals, families and communities. 


In this session, you can explore and discuss:

    • Why do we have a Census and why is it important?
    • What data does the Census collects about your community?

This activity includes:

    • educational videos about the Census and Census data
    • a downloadable guide on how to access Census data 
    • a downloadable Census personal form for your students to explore the questions asked. 


BROUGHT TO YOU BY: Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS)
