Elec­tronic cen­sus next

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - BACK PAGE -

SOUTH Africa’s next na­tional cen­sus will for the first time see pop­u­la­tion in­for­ma­tion col­lected elec­tron­i­cally.

Pre­sent­ing the

Sta­tis­tics SA bud­get vote in Par­lia­ment, the Min­is­ter of Plan­ning, Mon­i­tor­ing and Eval­u­a­tion, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, said the 2021 pop­u­la­tion count was vi­tal to plan for South Africa’s needs.

She said the data would be col­lected via com­puter-as­sisted per­sonal in­ter­views.

This would im­prove the qual­ity of data col­lected and re­duce the time-lag be­tween data col­lec­tion and the dis­sem­i­na­tion of re­sults. – African News Agency (ANA)
