The conduct of the 2016 Population and Housing Census will add value to the implementation of the Change Agenda of the Federal Government through the provision of accurate and reliable demographic data for evidence based planning for sustainable development.
The Chairman, National Population Commission, Eze Duruiheoma has called on public relations practitioners to bridge the communication gap between what government can do and what people should expect.
The commitment of the National Population Commission to provide the nation with a wide range of demographic data for planning purposes received a boost as the Board of the Commission at its 150th Ordinary Meeting of 28th October 2015 approved the inclusion of marriages and divorces in its Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) programme.
The effort of the National Population Commission to conduct the 2016 Population and Housing Census gathered momentum with the commencement of the Phase One of the Enumeration Area Demarcation in seven local government areas in the six geo political zones of the country and the Federal Capital Territory.
