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.
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.
2016 Census of Population and Housing
The 2016 Census of Population and Housing was held on Tuesday 9th August. QGSO assisted in promoting Queensland’s participation in the national Census of Population and Housing for the 2016 Census, as we have done in the previous 2011 Census and 2006 Census.
Queensland regional profiles help
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.
A step-by-step demonstration on how to create a profile in the Queensland regional profiles system is available in our help video.
