The Australian Census of Population and Housing takes place on Tuesday August 9, 2016.
We have been asked by our homestay hosts whether their students need to be included in the Census. The answer appears to be YES!
According to the Victorian Census Director, Ms Annette Kelly,
‘The census is compulsory for everyone in Australia on Census night and that includes all people who are visiting the country, whether they’re tourists or here for a longer term such as international students, or those who are on working visas…’
If your students would like information about the Census, this link from the Australian Bureau of Statistics contains information in a variety of languages.
