Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template allows for the inclusion of direct web links to official 2016 census data into Australian geographical articles. Due to periodic changes/redesigns on the ABS website, these links may change: the advantage of using the template is therefore that all articles using this template will migrate with it.

Usage[change source]

General[change source]

{{Census 2016 AUS|id= |name= |accessdate= |quick=on}}

Lists only[change source]

{{Census 2016 AUS|id= |link=yes}}

Parameters[change source]

id
ABS ID for the region (note: may be different from 2011, so don't convert across without checking.)
name
ABS Name for the region: e.g. Raymond Terrace (State Suburb).
accessdate
Optional parameter to record date accessed in the form dd mmmm yyyy (e.g. 27 October 2020).
quick
This is an optional but widely used parameter. When added at the end, generally as |quick=on, it forces QuickStats instead of a link to the "Census Community Profiles" page.
link
This is an optional parameter that causes a bare link to be generated instead of a citation if |link=yes and is for use in lists such as List of cities in Australia by population#50 largest urban centres by population. When this is the case, the only necessary parameter is id. Other parameters will not be used. This functionality is similar to that provided by {{Census 2006 AUS link}}.
