ABS - Usual Residential Population and Dwelling Count (MB) 2016

This dataset contains counts of the total usual resident population and total dwelling count from the 2016 Census of Population and Housing for Mesh Blocks.

Data is current for Census Night 9 August 2016 and describes geographic Australia; including Norfolk Island, the Territory of Christmas Island and the Territory of Cocos (Keeling) Islands, but does not include any other external Territory. Due to the small size of Mesh Blocks, data is confidentialised and only describes basic dwelling counts and number of persons usually resident.

For more information, refer to the Australian Bureau of Statistics' Census of Population and Housing: Mesh Block Counts, Australia, 2016: http://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/abs@.nsf/Lookup/2074.0Main+Features12016?OpenDocument.
