Box Hill’s Chinese population is recorded in the Census every five years by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The latest Census was conducted in 2011.

In the Census, people are asked about their country of birth, the languages they speak at home, proficiency in English, their ancestry and their religion. Together these questions paint a picture of the ethnic makeup of Box Hill.
