Census Informationcountry overview reports

"Census information provides us with a comprehensive picture of the social, health, economic, demographic and living conditions of our people both current and historical.  Only the census can provide such complete detail right down to the smallest area and the results are an essential tool for effective policy, planning and decision making purposes. Census information is also vital to business researchers and decision makers in the fields of management, marketing and economics.

It provides knowledge information and data, so that public resources can be shared evenly across the country and to ensure that services at local level are relevant to all the people who live there. Census information is free, easy to use and extremely useful."
