Census to cost more than Sk922 million

Preparation for and the implementation of the next census – including processing and publishing the results – could cost more than Sk922 million (€27m), according to draft legislation up for discussion at the Government session on October 3. The proposal states the costs will be apportioned between 2008 and 2014, and should cover the costs borne by the Slovak Statistics Office in carrying out the survey. These costs cover the technologies and equipment, data processing, printing, data gathering, and the information campaign.

Total costs per capita should be around Sk170 (€5). The national census is set to take place between March and May 2011, and citizens will be obliged to include some personal and confidential information, such as their nationality, religion or creed, educational background, family relations, and facts about living conditions. The last census was conducted in 2001. TASR
