TRIAL FOR NEW WAY OF DOING CENSUS CURRENTLY UNDERWAY
If you live in Camphersdrift, Bo-Dorp, George South or Thembalethu in George, you can participate in a new online and dial-in Census Trial that is currently underway across South Africa.
The initiative is a test run by Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) in preparation for Census 2021 and is investigating alternative ways of being counted in addition to or instead of house-to-house visits by census officials.
Registration can take place via your mobile phone or computer on https://getcounted.statssa.gov.za/#!/home or via toll-free phone number 0800 110 248.
The more people participate, the more information researchers can gain to ensure that processes are streamlined in time for the main project in 2021. Residents in the above areas are encouraged to participate to help test this safer, more cost-effective and international standard method. The closing date for registration is 6 September 2020.
