The ABS Australian Census, occurring every five years, is a major event with significance for all Australians. In 2021 the public’s growing expectation of government services required an accessible and reliable online experience.

ABS identified that using an Address Auto Complete and Validation capability as part of the Census online self-service process would help them meet the needs of their users by providing a contemporary user experience and assist the ABS and users by ensuring a higher quality address was provided to ABS to improve fulfilment outcomes, reducing the likelihood of incomplete addresses.

This would need to be achieved whilst meeting Census requirements in data currency, security and scalability while seamlessly integrating with ABS processes.

To help the ABS achieve its goals, Geoscape provisioned and deployed a secure, tested, single-tenancy Address Auto-suggest API service in a sovereign AWS environment. Download the case study to understand the brief, our solution and the result achieved.
