Event Overview

The importance of rich data to better inform all levels of government, business and communities is key to intelligently planning for future growth.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is at the forefront of providing statistics on a range of economic and social matters of importance to our nation and the learnings from both the data collected and the process of its collection, has been significant.

Census 2016, with a 96 per cent preliminary completion rate, has revealed significant insights which are shaping the profile of Australia.

CEDA is delighted to welcome members and their guests for an exclusive briefing to hear from David Kalisch, Australian Statistician on the release of the second, and key phase, of data from the recent Census.

At this Breakfast on the Run Series event, Mr David Kalisch will address:

  • Key growth drivers identified from Census 2016;
  • Data trends across housing, transport, education, industry, hospitals and the environment;
  • Learnings from the data collection process; and
  • How ABS is improving user-access to more timely, higher quality, and secure data in the future.

This event is a CEDA member only event. Registrations are exclusively available to CEDA members.
