    I like to use Census data to assist my property research. I was curious to see if any of the 2016 data has been released yet and stumbled upon the "Release Schedule of Topics" for population and housing. Thought some of you may be interested in this also.

    For the sake of promoting discussion, information do you think you could gain from the topics below which would help with property investment decisions?

    The real question is, what is the completion rate of this Census vs. the 2011 one?

    Wow! Didnt expect the completion rate to be so high in the end! I know a lot of people who requested the paper one to avoid digital.
