    Default Census 2016

    TBH after the terrorist attacks in France I'm sure a certain organisation would be happy to know that cop 2339710 lives at this specific address. Even if they don't have the names, the addresses and occupation would be valuable to them.

    Just an example

    The address data is also stripped from the rest of the form

    Immediately or are the ABS manually doing that for weeks afterwards like when they used the paper version only?

    I'm not sure how long it's been done (probably as long as the Internet has existed) but previously, the forms were scanned and converted to electronic data instantly - no manual data entry. That would take too long. ATO uses the same document scanning technology.

    The data has been on a computer server for decades. The fact that it's submitted electronically now is the only difference.

    I think that "census night" is promoted as THE night to fill out your census, so makes sense(us?) that most of Australia hopped online to do so. The only thing that doesn't make sense to me is how poorly the ABS planned for it....
    Centrelink, Medicare, ATO etc. have the same information (name, dob, address) and even more important information than the census (bank account details) and they keep it forever once you've told them your account no.

    I just completed my census and you didn't even have to put your date of birth!
