The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) will set the night alight and bring Census data to life during Vivid Sydney, 25 May – 11 June 2012.

The ABS has joined with the Spinifex Group to transform the façade of historic Cadman’s Cottage into an interactive playground filled with 2006 Census data.
Come to your Census will give people the opportunity to interact, explore and have fun with Census data and find out exactly what a Census can tell us about Australia and ourselves.

Every five years the ABS undertakes a Census of Population and Housing, providing a ‘snapshot’ of the nation. The last Census was held on 9 August 2011, and the first 2011 Census data will be released on 21 June 2012.

Come to your Census is just one of many attractions at Vivid Sydney, a celebration of the creative industries and the biggest festival of its kind in the southern Hemisphere.
