DON'T like the idea of being fined $180 a day?
Fill out your Census form, quickly.
Tomorrow is the last day paper and online forms will be accepted without penalty, and while the Australian Bureau of Statistics has now received more than 90% of responses from Australian households, that means under 1 in 10 people still haven't done it.
The 2011 Census covered 98 per cent of the population, placing Australia as a world leader in Census participation.
Whether we will hold that title this year is yet to be seen.
Head of the 2016 Census, Duncan Young, urged people not to wait until the last minute, or until it's too late.
"If you have your 12-digit online login number or paper form at home, complete it today before it's too late," he said.
"And don't forget to hit 'submit' at the end of the online form or to post the paper form in the provided blue reply paid envelope. Remember, fill in your form in relation to the night of August 9, 2016."
The vast majority of people in Australia have now willingly completed the Census and field officers continue to visit households that haven't completed their forms, Mr Young said.
Field officers will issue households with final reminder letters after visiting multiple times.
The Census is compulsory.
If a person refuses to participate in the Census, the Australian Statistician has the power under the Census and Statistics Act 1905 to direct them in writing to do so.
"In the rare case a person chooses not to follow this direction, the matter can be referred to the Director of Public Prosecution, at which point fines for non-compliance can be issued."
The fine for an individual not completing the Census on time is up to $180 a day, until it is complete.
