Statistical networks and coordination

Queensland Government Statistician's Office (QGSO) provides an integrated statistical service between Queensland Government agencies and the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). We identify and review the statistical requirements of the Queensland Government, advise the ABS on issues that inform the national statistical work program and support the Government Statistician as the Queensland Government’s representative on the Australian Statistical Advisory Council and the State Statistical Forum.

Statistical network

QGSO maintains a statewide network of people who are interested in statistical matters and uses Data Smart alerts to keep the network informed about topics of interest focusing on regional data needs; changes to relevant statistical standards and collections; and upcoming network information sessions. To join the network and keep informed about statistical matters: register for Data Smart alerts.

2021 Census

The 2021 Census night is on Tuesday 10th August and all Queenslanders are encouraged to participate.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics conducts the Census and will post out instructions in early August. This Census you can complete your form as soon as you have your instructions, if you know who will be home on Census night. This is different to past years when you had to fill in your form on the Census night.

Options for completing the form include online, on paper or with help from the ABS. For Queenslanders in remote communities Census staff will be available for face to face interviews over a longer period between July and August. For more information go to or call the Census contact centre on 1800 512 441 between 9am and 5pm (AEST) Monday to Friday.

Queensland regional profiles

The Queensland regional profiles are informative statistical reports on a range of Queensland community types (e.g. local government areas). These reports are generated automatically using the latest demographic, social and economic data available.

For a demonstration on how to create your own profiles, see the Queensland regional profiles help page.
