Census Night - 9 August 2011

Today, the Australian Bureau of Statistics is holding a Census to collect information about how people live, what work they do, religion, schooling, etc, to enable the Government to plan infrastructure, community services, schools, roads, hospitals, for where they are needed.

It is held every 5 years, and this year marks the 100th anniversary of the first census held in 1911.
Every household is required to answer the questions either on paper form (these were delivered last week) or online, as it is compulsory.
People staying in hotels, camping places, hospitals or travelling around Australia will also be counted on Census night.

I feel very excited to take part in this Census, as it´s the first time I am being counted in a Census anywhere in the world!!

So goodnight,  I´m off to fill in my details online...
