Census organisers say they're on track to deliver quality data despite the national survey's system outage.

The preliminary response rate - calculated based on estimates of the number of private dwellings - has been confirmed at more than 96 per cent, compared with a final rate of 96.5 per cent in the 2011 census.

The minimum response rate for the latest survey was considered to be 93.3 per cent, with the final rate - which could vary - available in April 2017 once all the data is processed.
