The 2022 population and housing census ends on Saturday, 30 April 2022, with enumerators now conducting a mop-up exercise to count those who are yet to be counted.
Zimbabwe National Statistics Agency (ZimStat) director-general Taguma Mahonde advised those missed to approach ZimStat offices or call the toll free number so that enumerators can visit their homes and count them. Said Mahonde:
Everything has been done and we are currently doing a mop-up operation for those who feel that they have not been counted.
We have alerted those who want to be counted on various media platforms to approach our offices or call us and we have started to receive calls from other people who want to be counted.
Everything is on course and we have also improved the quality of the data which is being collected.
The 2022 population and housing census started on the night of 20 April with the counting starting that night for special groups.
Preliminary results of the census are expected after three months.
