2011 Census of Population and Housing
Video TranscriptThe National Census is important to Queensland. Without it, we can't see how many Queenslanders there are. Which means the Federal Government can’t see where funding needs to go and important projects may never see the light of day. Let's make sure Queensland’s future doesn't get overlooked. Fill in the Census on Tuesday the 9th August and see that Queensland gets all the federal funding our growing population deserves. Census is for all of us.

The national Census is important to Queensland – without it, we can’t see how many Queenslanders there are.
The Australian Census of Population and Housing is held every five years and was last held on Tuesday 9 August 2011.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is responsible for conducting the Census. The Office of Economic and Statistical Research, Queensland Treasury, is working closely with the ABS to make sure that everyone in Queensland is counted and that the 2011 Census count for Queensland is as accurate as possible.
Accurate Census information and population counts are important – they are used to work out funding for Queensland, to inform policies, plan services and measure changes in our growing population. Census information is particularly important for people in regional Queensland, providing detailed small-area data used daily by business and community groups.
The Census is for all of us.
