Data nerds, speak up — the Australian Bureau of Statistics is calling for input from the users of Census data on what they should be collecting in 2021.
The Australian Census, that gold standard of demographic data and most comprehensive national survey. Ever wished they had an indicator that just wasn’t there, or access to a resolution that just didn’t exist?
Well, now you can make your voice heard.
The ABS will be accepting input on topics for the 2021 Census until June 30.
“Nearly 100 submissions have been received to date,” said Caroline Deans, Director of the 2021 Census Content Review. “Key areas of interest from the community to date have been regarding the Census collection of information on Occupation, Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples, Religion and Gender.”
“As we move towards the mid-point for the process, we look forward to receiving more insightful submissions from key data users, our Government partners and peak bodies.”
