Head of the 2016 Census Program Duncan Young told The Huffington Post Australia on Monday the website developers were prepared for an onslaught of Australians logging on, and a website crash would be unlikely.
More than 15 million people are expected to flood the Census site over the course of Tuesday to complete their forms and fears have been raised the great snapshot of 2016 might be end up being the great digital failure of 2016. Not possible, Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Census boss Chris Libreri told news.com.au. He said the system had passed testing with flying colours, so was unlikely to repeat the much-hyped failure of the 2012 Click Frenzy “sale that stops a nation” that only sent servers into meltdown. “We have load tested it at 150 per cent of the number of people we think are going to be on it on Tuesday for eight hours straight and it didn’t look like flinching,” he said.
The ABS said people would have until late September to complete the census and would not be finedif they did not do it tonight.
