Collector Workload (CLW)

A Collector Workload (CLW) is a geographic grouping of on average 450 dwellings which define an area in which generally a single Census Collector will deliver and collect Census Forms.

Every part of Australia is covered by Collector Workloads. These workloads are designed with reference to information obtained from:
  • government authorities;
  • Census collector comments from the previous Census;
  • local knowledge;
  • field inspections; and
  • the Public Sector Mapping Agencies (PSMA) Australia national topographic dataset.

Collector Workloads replace what were called Collection Districts prior to 2011, in terms of the delivery and collection of forms only.

Collector Workloads are not used for the output of information from the Census.
