The Planning and Statistics Authority (PSA) announced the conclusion of field work in the final phase of the General Census of Population, Housing and Establishments 2020, which was launched in mid-December 2020.

The conclusion of the field work coincided with the closure of the Census E-registration Platform that allowed households and individuals to self-complete their data through the electronic form on PSA Website.
PSA had resumed the implementation of the final phase of field work of "Qatar Census 2020" on 1 December 2020 after it was suspended in mid-March 2020 as part of the precautionary measures taken by the Qatar to combat the spread of Covid -19 pandemic. Field work was resumed after obtaining the approval of the Ministry of Public Health and adhering to all precautionary measures.
PSA is currently working on completing, reviewing, auditing and evaluating census data in preparation for publishing its preliminary results in the second quarter of 2021.
Further, PSA called on all households and individuals who were unable to fill in their data during the field work period or through the electronic form to communicate with PSA to coordinate the completion of their data in the Census until mid-February 2021.
