A census of the population of Turkmenistan is planned for December 17-27. This event will provide an opportunity to obtain reliable statistical indicators on the socio-demographic situation of the country's citizens.
As B. Annamukhammedova, deputy head of the demography department of the State Statistics Committee, stressed, the census will reveal not only information about the living conditions of Turkmen citizens, but also data about citizens of other countries or stateless persons who live in the country.
This public campaign will identify leading areas where increased resource consumption, job growth, quality health care, and educational and childcare facilities are expected.
The census will be conducted with the participation of volunteers, who will use digital ways to record and transmit data to the State Statistics Committee.
