Eco­nomic Census

Beijing Review - - THIS WEEK ECONOMY -

The fourth na­tional eco­nomic census en­tered its reg­is­tra­tion phase on Jan­uary 1.

The sur­vey will cover all busi­nesses in­volved in the sec­ondary and ter­tiary in­dus­tries, paint­ing a wide eco­nomic pic­ture.

About 30 mil­lion im­per­sonal en­ti­ties and in­dus­trial ac­tiv­ity units, as well as about 60 mil­lion self­em­ployed en­trepreneurs will be in­volved.

Ning Jizhe, deputy head of the Na­tional De­vel­op­ment and Re­form Com­mis­sion and head of the Na­tional Bu­reau of Sta­tis­tics, said the reg­is­tra­tion will de­ter­mine the qual­ity of the whole census and called for ef­forts to en­sure sta­tis­tics are ac­cu­rate and true.
