The National Population Commission (NPC) has announced the commencement of plans for the 2023 Population and Housing Census exercise. In a new video released by the commission, it was revealed that the upcoming census will be the first digital and green census in Nigeria.
The commission has put measures in place to ensure that every Nigerian is counted, including persons with disabilities and the homeless. Caregivers are encouraged to ensure that persons with disabilities are included in the census exercise.
The 2023 census data will be crucial for development planning and efficient budgeting, as it will be used to plan infrastructure development, social amenities, and job creation. The data will also improve business forecasting, projections, and the integrity of social research statistics.
To ensure accuracy and credibility, the commission has deployed technology and a data quality management system that prevents data manipulation. The country has also been divided into small areas to make data collection easy, and census workers will cover hard-to-reach areas.
With the new government set to utilize the 2023 census data for development planning, the NPC is committed to conducting a successful exercise that provides accurate and reliable data. The video released by the commission serves as a call to action for all Nigerians to participate in the exercise and contribute to the country’s growth and development.
The 2023 census exercise will undoubtedly be a significant milestone in Nigeria’s history, and the NPC’s plans are geared towards ensuring that it is a success.
