Australia’s richest source of data now online

Federal Member for Forrest Nola Marino has welcomed the release of the Australian 2011 Census Population and Housing data that will give an up-to-date snapshot of your local town and region.

“Census data is vital for understanding our community and will underpin future Government planning,” Mrs Marino said.

“The new Census data will help Government decision makers to decide where amenities such as school, hospitals, roads and public transport are needed most.”

Mrs Marino encouraged people to make their own use of the Census data.

“The data is now available on the Australian Bureau of Statistics website and is a comprehensive source of information about our community,” she said.
