Online Census Participation Higher Than Expected

Close to 20,000 people participated in the online registration of the eighth round of the National Population and Housing Census from 7-9 a.m. on Monday.

This is while during the first two days of the survey only about 30,000 people could complete their registrations due to technical problems that occurred on the website of Iran Statistical Center, namely www.sarshomari25.ir.

“Up until now, Tehran, Khorasan Razavi, Fars and Isfahan are the provinces with the highest participation rates in this year’s online national census,” ISNA quoted Omid Ali Parsa, the head of SCI, as saying.

According to Alireza Zahedian, the deputy head of SCI, since the census began on Saturday, on average 15 households have been registering every second.

“Participation in the online registration has been higher than what we expected,” he told IRNA.

The eighth round of Population and Housing Census began on September 24 and will run through November 15. This round will be conducted in two phases: online registration (September 24-October 15) and door-to-door survey (October 16-November 15).

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 census 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 decided in 2007 that the interval for population and housing censuses be reduced to five years from 10 years. The seventh and last population and housing census of the country was held in 2011.
