Australian Bureau of Statistics issues Friday deadline for 2016 Census

FRIDAY is the deadline for people to drop their excuses and file their Census.

The vast majority of people in Australia have now willingly completed the Census and field officers have visited households that haven’t completed their forms.

“If you’re among the less than one in ten households in Australia that hasn’t completed your Census, now is the time to get it done. Don’t wait until the last minute or until it’s too late,” head of the 2016 Census Duncan Young from the Australian Bureau of Statistics said. 

“If you have your 12-digit online login number or paper form at home, complete it today before it’s too late. 

“And don’t forget to hit ‘submit’ at the end of the online form or to post the paper form in the provided blue reply paid envelope.”
