COUNTDOWN TO THE CENSUS BEGINS! – NORFOLK ISLAND EDITORIAL APPROACH PHASE 28 JULY – 8 AUGUST FOR PUBLISHING ON 1 AUGUST

Friday, August 05, 2016
The countdown to the 2016 Census has begun, with 8 days to go until Norfolk Islanders take part in Australia’s largest peace time operation on Tuesday, 9 August 2016. 

New South Wales Census Director, Liz Bolzan is calling on all Norfolk Islanders to complete their Census form, which will begin arriving at households soon.  
“Local Census Field Officers are now visiting households to deliver Census packs which include: Census letter, the Household form; a Norfolk Island fact sheet and a privacy envelope. Households can refer to the Norfolk Island factsheet to assist them in completing their form, which provides examples of some questions and how they relate to people on Norfolk Island.”

“Instructions for online completion, including a unique login code will be displayed on the front of the form should residents wish to complete their Census via the internet.” 

“The Census form will take approximately 30 minutes to complete per household and must include everyone staying with you on Census night. All information you provide is kept private and secure and ABS cannot and will not ever release your identifiable Census data. For visitors and travellers staying at a hotel, motel, hostel or any other type of accommodation, the service provider will provide you with a Census Pack to complete the Census,” Ms Bolzan said. 

For the first time, Norfolk Island will be included in the Census conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics every 5 years,” Ms Bolzan said. In 2011, Norfolk Island had a population of 1,796 people in their last Census.  

“It is important to gain an accurate snapshot of Norfolk Island to help make informed decisions for future planning,” Ms Bolzan said.
