Mozambique to hold census in August
font size    

Mozambique will hold census in August and the country's Coordinating Council for the General Population and Housing Census (CCRGPH) have just approved a new budget, totaling 34 million U.S. dollars for the 2007 census.

Mozambique News Agency (AIM) Wednesday quoted the National Statistics Institute (INE) as saying that the budget was approved during the fourth meeting of the CCRGPH, chaired by Prime Minister Luisa Diogo, on December 26.

At this meeting the CCRGPH also approved the final version of the census questionnaire, making a number of small improvements arising from the experience of the pilot census undertaken in October 2006.

The CCRGPH described the pilot census as "a success", and as an important phase in preparing for the full census, the third to be taken since Mozambican independence in 1975.

The pilot census registered slightly more than 400,000 people, in 100,000 households.
