“National Census is not just a mere collection of data, number of people and houses, it includes the collection of demographic, social and economic data, which government uses to formulate economic policies, he said.

“The data generated serve as useful guide in the distribution of social amenities and infrastructural projects.

“In other words, population census is at the heart of planning for the future by government, based on figure obtained during the census exercise.

“A properly conducted population census, therefore, saves government from planning blindly”, he concluded.
