$2200 fine if you lie on the Census
Census night is Tuesday, August 10.
It’s important to know that it’s an offence to provide false or misleading statements or information on your census form and that the penalty is a fine of up to $2220.
In the 2001 Census, there were just over 73,000 Jedi in Australia, or 0.37 per cent of the population.
The census is a key information collection method for offical population estimates which are used for lots of purposes, such as the distribution of Commonwealth funding, setting of electoral boundaries and GST distribution.
So on Tuesday, make sure you fill out your form correctly!
