It's going to depend on the specific copyright laws in your country. In the USA, as I understand it, a census, even recent, cannot be copyrighted as it is a collection of DATA. Data cannot be copyrighted. Sometimes the form in which the data is presented is copyrightable (a phone book for example). But if someone wanted to, they could transcribe and republish the data in their own format.
