Half of Iranians Took Online Census

Nearly 50% of Iranians chose to participate in the online version of the country’s national census in 2016, thus reducing by 35,000 the number of personnel for census work. Precisely 48.4% of Iranians took part in the online version of the 2016 national census. “The record-high online participation also helped save 120 billion tomans [nearly $33 million] and led to a 50% decrease in the number of personnel hired for census work,” the president’s official website said. The nationwide census began on September 24 and ran through November 15, 2016. The census was 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 the population, agriculture, manufacturing, trade and economy.
