The National Census of Population and Housing is conducted every five years by the ABS. The 2016 Census, conducted on 9 August 2016, provided vital information for governments and the community to use in planning, policy development, service delivery and research.

The department produces research based on Census and other data. Sample profiles for eleven areas are available to download now, or you can create your own profile from the online fact sheet file for one of 556 areas, ranging from Australia to Statistical Area Level 2 (suburb, town or region level).
