National population census from today; preliminary data in 3 months

KATHMANDU: The 12th national population census is beginning across the country on Thursday. It will continue until November 25.

Nebin Lal Shrestha, the director-general of the Central Bureau of Statistics, says the department will mobilise 40,000 enumerators across the country. They will ask around 80 questions to each household, spending around 20 minutes.

Around 8,500 supervisors will oversee these enumerators. Both enumerators and supervisors have been trained to carry out their duties.

The bureau says it is making the counting process paperless in the Kathmandu district. Instead, around 2,250 tablets will be mobilised.

Assuring the data collected would be kept confidential, Shrestha urges all to actively contribute to the census.
