Let's join forces to save the 2016 Census


The government and ABS are proposing to replace the five-yearly census with a much reduced ten-yearly version, supplemented with survey data in the interim years. We believe there are serious implications to Australian communities as the census is key to informing policies, planning service delivery, allocating resources and much more. Join us to help save the 2016 census.
