On Monday the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) released the second round of data from the 2016 Census of Population and Housing.

The topics, including labour force and employment, education, interstate migration and how we travel to work, will reveal an even richer picture of Australian life. A complete list of Census data topics released in October can be found here.

This information will be available through our easy-to-use online tools – QuickStats, Community Profiles and analytical articles.

The Library provides access to ABS publications via the Database A-Z list. You can also find key sources of Australian and international statistics and data in the Find Statistics guide.

2016 Census data is now available on the ABS Stats app. View and compare 2016 Census data on people, families and homes by suburb and electoral divisions. You can also watch Australia’s population clock and access up to 33 key economic indicators. Download for Android or iOS now.
