1 day to go: no Census Form? We need to know

    Tomorrow night, every household is required to fill in a census form.

    Anyone who does not have a form, or needs additional forms, should advise the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) immediately.

    All census forms have now been delivered. If a household has been missed census forms will be expressly delivered in time for census night, tomorrow night.

    It's vitally important that everyone is included in the nations snapshot. The Census has always had strong community support as Australians have recognised the Census is the best way to take stock and plan for the nations future.

    The ABS urges anyone who does not have a form or needs additional forms to follow the links on the homepage of the census website at (24 hours), or call the Census Inquiry Service on 137 219. This service operates 7 days a week from 8-30am until 10-00pm.

    A telephone interpreter service is available by dialling 137 206. A Telephone Typewriter facility will assist people with hearing impairments - phone 137 201. These telephone services are available from 8:30am till 10:00pm seven days a week. A public information website is also available at
