Georgia to conduct census in November 2014

by | Apr 6, 2013

TBILISI, DFWatch–Georgia will conduct a population census November 5-19, 2014.

An action plan is already ready and preparations for the census will start in 2013.

Minister for Regional Development and Infrastructure Davit Narmania and Head of the National Statistics Department Zaza Chelidze said Friday at a joint press conference.

Special groups of people will go door-to-door to provide preliminary information about the number of persons living in houses.

At the first stage, about 4 000 persons will be employed. November 5-19, the plan will enter the second stage with a complete census of the population.

15 000 persons will be selected for this goal, who will have a special questionnaire to ask each citizen.

Narmania noted that the government made a decision to conduct an agricultural census along with the population census, which means that along with social and demographic data, information will be gathered about agricultural and industrial activities.

The results of the census will be published step by step, and the first results will be be made public after six months, Zaza Chelidze said.

About USD 10 million will be spent on the census. Georgia last had a population census 25 years ago.
