Travellers reminded to stand up and be counted

first_imgThe Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) will conduct the Australian Census tonight (9 August) with travellers reminded that they are required to participate regardless of where they are and where they come from.The Census aims to count the number of people in the country, collect data on their dwellings and analyse their behaviour so governments can better plan infrastructure and community services.  Travellers staying in hotels, hostels and other lodging will be provided with details about the Census by property management whilst those travelling on a plane, ship, train or bus on Census night should be contacted by their transport operators. The ABS has made arrangements for visitors to remote areas with Traveller’s Packs available from designated collection points located around Australia. The Australian Census is carried out every five years. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: M.Hlast_img
