Census to start on October 1
The next census of the Hungarian population will start on October 1, the head of the Central Statistical Office told a press conference on Monday, adding that participation in the national survey was mandatory.
Residents will have until October 16 to fill in the questionaires online. After that date, census officers will contact people who have not provided information electronically, Gabriella Vukovich said.
The census, conducted every 10 years, yields a “snapshot” of the country, with details about the living and working conditions, health and religious denomination of Hungarians, Vukovich said.
Information collected in the census is crucial in determining local demand and for making decisions for the future, Vukovich said.
