Census Night - Tuesday the 9th August
Sunday, 07 August 2016 17:47
Tuesday the 9th of August 2016 is Census night in Australia. The Census provides a snapshot of the nation at that point in time. It collects vital information on the social, economic and housing characteristics of everyone in Australia.
It is important for all Buddhists that we tick the right box under religious affiliation rather than the “no religion” box. The benefits we receive from the government in terms of funding etc. will ultimately depend on our numbers. If we can still continue as the largest minority religion, we will be more likely to be heard by the government. The website to go to for details is as follows;
www.census.abs.gov.au and the phone number to call is 1300 214 531 (toll free).
