Significance of the census

The Census provides complete, good quality, accurate and internationally comparable data on population, households and dwellings. It allows the data to be comparable with those from previous censuses, in line with the needs of national and international users.

The census is the main source of data for small geographical areas (settlements, parts of settlements), and the data thereof are also used for:
• Annual estimations of the number of population (in the inter-census period);
• Projections of the number and main structure of population for a long period of time;
• Analysis and evaluation of the situation in the economical and social development;
• Monitoring of plans implementation;
• Planning the development in the economy, education, health, housing and other economic and social domains;
• R&D;
• Statistical purposes, etc.
