Census preps commence

3 38

Harare (New Ziana) – The Zimbabwe government has commenced preparations for the 2022 population census to be conducted at a cost of $85 million, a Cabinet Minister said on Monday.

Zimbabwe conducts population counts every ten years with the last one conducted in 2012 showing that the country had 13 million people.

Finance and Economic Development Minister Mthuli Ncube said groundwork for the census had already started.

“We are going to be training something like 33-36 000 enumerators; it is a major undertaking which requires a lot of manpower,” he said.

“The idea is that in August 2021 we have a trial run to make sure that the system will work and then finally on the midnight of 17th August 2022 the census officially starts.”

Ncube said this time around enumerators will be collecting data using Information Technology gadgets.

“This will enable faster data collection but also more efficient analysis, we should be able to produce figures and numbers within six months unlike in the past which used to take two years so by March 2023 the figures will be ready and published,” he said.

    I think everything posted was actually very reasonable.
    However, think on this, what if you added a little information? I ain’t saying your information isn’t good, however what if you added a headline
    that makes people desire more? I mean Census preps commence – New Ziana is kinda plain. You should look at
    Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post titles to grab viewers to click.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about
    everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could
    make your posts a little bit more interesting.
