BHUTAN’S FIRST-EVER ECONOMIC CENSUS
The first-ever economic census of Bhutan will begin next month.
The 2018 Economic Census of Bhutan will survey business units, non-governmental and corporate organizations, and other sectors that are engaged in productive activities during the two-month long survey.
Information like the nature of the activity, costs, income, number of people employed and the source of finance, among others, will be collected through the census.
The National Statistics Bureau is initiating the economic census with technical and financial assistance from the World Bank.
