Stats SA will undertake a population and housing census, Census 2022, from 2 February next year. Census is a huge project that requires community mobilisation on a massive scale.

Census 2022 is different from other censuses in the following ways, among other things:

1) This will also be our first digital census where devices will be used to collect data.

2) Respondents will be able to choose between having a Stats SA fieldworker visiting their houses to conduct the interview using a digital device, or completing the questionnaire remotely via the web or telephonic.

3) Recruitment will (ONLY) be through our online database to ensure that people are recruited from their areas of residence (CLOSING DATE 31 December 21).
