The 2016 Census will be conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) on 9 August 2016.
Helping residents fill out forms
Where possible, care recipients should complete Census forms in the same way as any member of the public.
If you have care recipients who cannot physically fill out their forms, or cannot get help from family members or representatives, you may be able to nominate a staff member to be recruited and paid by the ABS as a Special Field Officer to help. The Special Field Officer can assist care recipients by interview or use information from administrative records to complete the Census form.
