There Is EVEN More Problems With The Census Website.
Posted on August 19, 2016
Census woes have hit again with the ABS’s website experiencing yet another outage.
Upon trying to log on to the website, Australians were told the website was ‘unreachable’’ due to a server ‘error’’.
@ABSStats Is Census site down again? I haven't been able to log on to it all day - Chrome, Firefox, IE, Android, none works!— The DON (@Don_Is_Good) August 18, 2016
The government agency is not sure on how many census forms have been completed since ‘census night’’ has passed but it is believed more than half thhe country have now logged on.
Around 2.3 million forms were submitted on the night before the census before the website was shut down after a spate of cyber attacks.
The public are worried that they may be fined $180 per day for not completing the census, which is already past its due date.
The ABS is yet to comment.
