Nat’l Census as of Sept. 24

A national census is scheduled nationwide by the Statistical Center of Iran as of September 24.
“It will be carried out in two stages. The first will be via Internet and continue until October 15. This will be followed by a second stage of door-to-door data collection,” IRNA quoted Alireza Zahedi with SCI as saying.
The Statistical Center of Iran is the official body in charge of providing data on population, agriculture, manufacturing, trade and economy of Iran.
The national population and housing censuses used to be conducted once a decade in Iran, as stipulated by national legislation, in the years between 1956 and 2006. The first such census was completed by the Bureau of General Statistics in 1956; subsequent censuses were conducted by SCI in 1966, 1976, 1986, 1996 and 2006.
The Cabinet adopted a ratification in 2007 that the interval for population and housing censuses be reduced to five years from 10 years. The 2011 census was the seventh and the latest national population and housing census of the country.
