We express our appreciation to all persons – census committees, census partners, census officials, field officers, monitors, the media, stakeholders – who availed themselves for this important national exercise to help make this census a success.

This census, the nation’s first fully digital census and one conducted amidst the COVID-19 pandemic was one filled with many prospects and some challenges. We have chronicled our journey and the innovations instituted to ensure a successful exercise. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about the 2021 PHC and visit the dissemination tab to access the census data products that will be released in the coming months and years.

Our hope is for the census data products to be used for the data for research, policy-making and planning to solve the nation’s development challenges. This census is estimated to produce at least 2.6 million disaggregated indicators to be used for the formulation of policies and the monitoring of both national and international development goals.
