What is a Census?
It is the total process of planning, collecting, compiling, evaluating, disseminating and analysing statistical data pertaining to all units of a population at a specified time in a country or a well-delimited part of a country.
Census 2022 will be conducted according to the provisions of the Statistics Act.
A field force of around 7,000 officers will be mobilized for data collection.
Data capture and processing
The data collection exercise will be done using the Computer Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI) method. This is the first time Statistics Mauritius will make use of tablets to collect Census data. Testing was carried twice to assess and evaluate many aspects of the census operations.
However, a Pilot Census couldn't be conducted out due to COVID-19.
