You’ve probably seen the ads for the 2021 Census, and next week every Australian household will be required to fill out their census form.

Census data plays an important part in shaping government policy decisions and is a snapshot of our country. Accurate data means no one gets left behind when planning our healthcare, housing, aged care, and other essential services.

In the religion question, you will be given a list of options to select. Judaism/Jewish will not be listed.

Instead of selecting from the options given, tick other and write in JUDAISM or JEWISH.

Our national census should reflect the diversity of the community because when it doesn’t we all lose.

Thank you in advance for your help with this important exercise.
