The Australian Bureau of Statistics is wrapping up the formal collection period for the 2016 Census today.
The Census can be quickly and easily completed online with your 12-digit Login or send your paper form back in the provided Reply Paid envelope.
Head of the 2016 Census Program, Duncan Young, said Ipswich residents can still contact the ABS if they have questions, and receive a paper form if they need one, once the online system has closed.
"Paper forms will continue to be accepted as they make their way back via return mail," Mr Young said.
"Around 95 per cent of households have completed the Census," he said.
"Census data is used to inform decision and policy making in every area across Australia. It shows population growth and demographics to help plan investment in such things as aged care services for the elderly, hospitals and transport. Importantly, Census data shows how we are changing as a society and where we are heading so we can plan appropriately to support our future."
The Census is compulsory for everyone who was in Australia on Tuesday August 9. For assistance complete the Online Inquiry form on census.abs.gov.au or call the Census Inquiry Service on 1300 214 531.
