Since June 10, a trial census has begun in our country that will last until June 30 and will be implemented in 13 municipalities. This trial census was supposed to be a kind of simulation of the main inventory to be held in April next year. It will check how all the instruments are functioning for the successful implementation of this largest statistical operation.
"It will serve us to see if we are on the right track, which needs to be improved, that needs to be corrected, so that next year we can be seriously, professionally prepared for the successful implementation of this truly the largest statistical operation", stressed Jasmina Gjorgjieva, coordinator of the Department for Dissemination and Public Relations.
The Bureau of Statistics calls on the citizens to trust the enumerators in such a way to help with the realization of the census. The basic requirement for someone to enlist is to show a document on which his ID number will be displayed.
Also, one of the novelties is that this time will be enumerated and people who have moved abroad. Therefore, it appeals to citizens who are included in the census circles for the trial census, and next year for the main census, if they have persons from the family who are abroad, if they can provide ID numbers, in that case they will be able to censor.
For those who are abroad, for the main census next year was envisaged self-recording, via an electronic web application. The results of this trial census will not be published anywhere, they will only be used for the needs of the Office.
Otherwise, the trial census will be conducted in Kisela Voda, Zelenikovo, Gostivar, Kichevo, Struga, Dolneni, Sveti Nikole, Radovish, Valandovo, Kumanovo, Kratovo, Prilep and Shtip.
