2020 Census

2020 Census to be launched

National Planning Minister Richard Maru said data collected through the census is vital for the government and policy makers.

An exercise that is bigger than the national elections, its primary objective is to fully obtain the side of the population in terms of demographic and age profile for government planning.

An exercise previously conducted in 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2011.

“The Census will cost between K150 and K200 million,” said Maru.
