Demographics of the 2016 Australian Census

Demography studies the statistics of human populations. Demography is usually used to study dynamic (constantly changing) populations. It covers the study of the size, structure and distribution of these populations and the changes in these populations due to births, deaths, migration and emigration. Demography can also be applied to entire groups defined by nationality, religion and ethnicity. Formal demography limits its object of study to the measurement of populations processes, while the more broad field of social demography population studies also analyse the relationships between economic, social, cultural and biological processes influencing a population. On August 9, 2016, Australians were asked to complete the census and this week the first round of statistics were released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). A census is a series of questions asked to every household in the country and it is held every five years. The first Australian census was conducted in 1911. The census provides the government and the public a snapshot of who lives in Australia, where and how they live, what they earn and believe.
