Breaking Cenus

If you have not completed your 2021 census a field officer may knock on the door of your home

The role of field officers is to give help and encouragement to those who have not yet filled in their census questionnaire online, or on paper, and direct them to any support services they might need to complete it. They will not enter the household, and will carry ID to show they are genuinely working on the census.

Field officers will never ask for payment or bank details and for a fine to be imposed your case must go to court for non-completion of the census.

Any fines issued for those refusing to complete their census will be done via the courts and you will never be issued with a fine by text message, phone call or email.
