The National Statistical Office (NSO), wishes to inform the general public throughout Papua New Guinea that Structural Listing for the 2021National Population and Housing Census will be carried out between 28th of January and 3rd of February 2021.

Structural Listing is a prerequisite for the 2021 census and is a systemic way of compiling a list of household information to make way for the main census enumeration in July 2021. This exercise is important as it will serve as a checklist for quality and full coverage of the 2021 Census.

Census officials will be visiting your homes between the 28th of January and the 3rd of February 2021, to conduct the structural listing in every province. Your cooperation in providing reliable information to visiting census officials is important to its success.

The Census, conducted every Ten (10) years, is endorsed by the Government of PNG. Data collected through the census will form the baseline for our National, Provincial and Local Level Governments for efficient planning of development programs, effective policy making, precise services distribution and good governance for the next ten years.

This message is from the National Statistical Office, lead implementing agency of the 2021 National Population and Housing Census, supported by United Nations Population Fund and European Union.
