Where is everyone getting their info about the data being kept for just 18 months or like 4 years?? If you choose to (as we have), the data can be released after 99 years. I have dabbled in family history so I'm more than happy to let my data be released, as is DP.

(sorry can't do hyperlink on phone). if people are worried they really need to find accurate information about this, not just rely on newspapers or blogs or whatever.

Haven't read the thread but quick question, how long have you all been aware of the census? DH and I were talking last night, we've only really known about it for a week or 2 and DH has been trying to contact the abs because we've not received a code to do it online. When he calls he just gets an automated message saying there's a high volume of calls and then it hangs up on him. It doesn't seem as heavily advertised this year so now we have no idea what we're supposed to do. Is anyone else in the same boat? He has emailed them last week, but as yet no reply.

I only heard about it recently too, came as a surprise!
I've ordered a paper form and it won't arrive for today. I read there is an "unofficial" deadline of 23rd September to do it so don't stress.
If you didn't get the letter, I think the only way is to get another code by going to the Census Inquiry Service page and sending a message, or calling which is sounds like you have done.

Oh I'm not stressed, just more frustrated. For something as major as a census you think there would be more advertising/awareness about it for say a month leading up to it. Especially when the fine is something ridiculous like $180/day (as per DH - I have no idea)
