The National Workforce Census will be asking details about each service relating to a seven day period or ‘reference week’. The reference week for this service is:

  • All Vacation services
    Reference week: Monday April 12th to Sunday April 18th
  • All other services
    Reference week: Monday May 10th to Sunday May 16th

You will receive instructions for completing the data collection online via email immediately after the reference week.

Data and personal information that is collected is confidential and will only be released in a way that does not enable individual services or people to be identified.

Services that submit their National Workforce Census by the due date will be entered in a draw to win a $750 voucher for educational materials or equipment. There will be two vouchers awarded in each state and territory.

Prompt completion of the National Workforce Census is greatly appreciated!

Complete from the day following the Reference Week
