Caveat for 2011 Census data advance orders

Please note that the content of the data released will not be certain until a few weeks before the scheduled release date. While we endeavour to meet your data requirements, this may have implications for the range or quality of variables you specify in your tables. Information Consultants will work closely with you to keep you informed of issues that may affect your information needs, and offer alternatives if available.
