The Planning and Statistics Authority (PSA) on Wednesday suspended, until further notice, the field work to collect data of families and individuals as part of the General Census of Population, Housing and Establishments 2020, which was scheduled to be launched on March 22.
The PSA added that the suspension of the field phase of Census 2020 comes in accordance with the preventive and precautionary measures taken by the State to limit the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19) and for the sake of the safety of families, individuals and field researchers.
During the suspension period, the authority noted that it will continue with the procedures for improving technical and statistical infrastructure and carrying out the necessary experiments and tests, in co-operation with the relevant authorities.
The PSA had completed all phases of the census that precede the phase of collecting data from families and individuals by preparing well for the census, co-ordinating and linking with data sources in the country, building systems, programmes and databases, collecting data of buildings, houses and establishments, and electronic registration of families and individuals who wish to fill in their data by themselves in the counting stage.
