The National Statistical Institute starts two control surveys for Census 2021. More than 400 experts who work at the NSI statistical departments throughout the country will make rounds of 14 000 dwellings and will interview the households living therein. It is a random sample and the surveys will last until 31st October 2021.
Enumerator rounds last until 10th October
2 404 979 people distributed in 1 060 335 households got counted electronically by Census 2021 Information System.
1 082 314 people have registered as the greatest is the number of women of the group of ages 40 to 49 - 139 777.
The most are the people counted online in Sofia - 790 408 people which is a little more than 60% of the population of the capital city.
There are another 36 hours by 24.00 on 30th September when the deadline for the online census expires. Until then citizens can get counted via the Census 2021 Information System. The e-census is faster and more comfortable and people do not need to wait for an enumerator.
As to 7 a.m. today 2 216 254 people distributed in 973 811 households were those counted online. There were also 114 000 not fully completed questionnaires then.
2 152 368 people have got counted electronically, show data as to 6 a.m. today, 28th September. Every one who has filled in their questionnaire online successfully has received a unique census code on their email address.
The e-census code is a 15-digit one and contains official coded information – about the municipality, control area and census section where the household is located. There is no personal information in it that could be used by another person. That's why people shouldn't worry that it could be abused.
20 help centres where NSI experts assist people to get counted function throughout the country. Everyone who wants to get counted electronically, but cannot do it on themselves at home, can visit such a centre. There they will be provided with a tablet or computer to do it and all their questions will be answered. People who want to be counted by a paper questionnaire but do not want to wait for the enumerator at home, are also welcome. You can see the addresses of the help centres here and most of them work also at weekends.
3 244 750 persons in the country have filled in successfully the questionnaire or have been counted by enumerators, show the data at the beginning of the day yesterday, 24th September. 1 652 935 are the dwellings counted.
For a week, since 18th September over 1.3 million people have been counted by paper. In 6 regions more than half of the population has been counted. The ranking is kept by Pernik (54%), followed by Sofia (capital city), Lovech, Ruse, Vratsa and Plovdiv.
‘As to 6 a.m. today 1 937 000 persons got counted electronically, which means that they will outreach 2 million by the end of the day.’ This was the beginning of the conversation with the President of the National Statistical Institute (NSI) Sergey Tsvetarsky in the show "This Morning" on bTV on Friday. He added that the greatest percentage of people counted electronically is in Sofia – almost 50%. The second place keeps Varna with 35,5%. In Kardzhali and Smolyan they are around 10%, said Tsvetarsky.
The enumerators who are to visit people at their homes, shall fill in only a questionnaire. Therein shall not be filled in any data from the personal identity documents of people except their names and Personal Identification Number. Nowhere signature shall be required.
The enumerators shall not have the right to ask for your identity card, driver’s licence or passport or to give you for signature declarations, applications or any other document whatsoever.
1 707 458 people got counted online up to now, show data as to 6 a. m. today. 100 000 people got counted for twenty-four hours. Also 686 459 dwellings were counted where 748 748 households live.
