Kyrgyzstan sets date of general population census

The general population and housing census is planned to be held from March 23 to April 1, 2020. This became known at the meeting of the republican commission for holding the event.

It is planned that the census will take place in five forms. In particular, citizens, who do not live in the republic for more than 12 months, will be also taken into account. In the remote regions, the census will take place from April 20 to April 29.

«One of the innovations in this census will be that we will learn the exact number of people in migration and people with disabilities. In 2019, a pilot population census will be held in Chui region to test the system,» Akylbek Sultanov, head of the National Statistical Committee, said.

According to preliminary data, from 2018 to 2020, the entire procedure will require 547.5 million soms. Most (62 percent) of the money will be spent on the staff salaries.
