“The census provides data on current official population figures, population data, such as age, gender or, for example, citizenship, as well as average size of residence, vacancies or rates, and living and housing conditions,” the State Statistics Office said Tuesday. . Those selected by statisticians should participate in the survey, but the data will remain anonymous.
Investments are based on population
Office head Christian Botan explained that the census is necessary because many services between municipalities, states and interstates are related to residents. If this data is not available, “money cannot be fairly distributed”. According to reports, this applies to the division of blocks or to invest in infrastructure, which are based on population. The census consists of two separate surveys: the so-called household census, of which a total of about 340,000 persons are to be surveyed in the McLenberg-Western Pomerania, with a population of about 10.3 million nationwide.
In addition to this model, it has been written to all owners of apartment buildings and houses, numbering about 405,000 in the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania – their so-called Building and Apartment Census.
