    Default Census 2016

    http://www.news.com.au/finance/econo...2144e1e7c69386

    This article highlights some of the reasons why the census is important. I think those reasons are more important than the privacy issues, which seem to be grossly exaggerated from what I have read..

    Nick Xenephon planning to refuse to provide his name on the census (but fill in the rest), and plans for himself to be a test case.

    This is very irresponsible of him.

    This is why I have no issue with the census and giving our names....

    When talking about one of the reasons they collect names = to link responses individuals give - eg how many children you have and how much domestic unpaid work you do - "The ABS uses a one way encryption process from name to an encrypted key, so it's a one way process. You can't go back from the key to name," Young told HuffPost Australia.

    "And the reason we do that isn't because we have to do that. It is the best way to keep the data secure and to reserve privacy through the process."

    I believe he's doing his job of elected MP. I've written to a few and I'm glad someone is speaking up.

    He is inciting people to boycott the census pretty much. He even very "tongue in cheek" said "oh im not saying other people should withhold required information, because if I was to say that, it would be a criminal offence, but I'm just Going to do this and see what happens.." It's extremely irresponsible, especially *Because* he is an elected MP.

    It's like when celebrities start publicly spewing anti-vaccination vitriol.

    It's not in the public interest and he shouldn't do it, in my opinion.
