Russia and Others to Promote their Censuses during WSD


26 August 2010 -- In the Russian Federation , World Statistics Day (WSD) will be celebrated in conjunction with the All-Russian Population Census , scheduled to be held from 14-25 October 2010. Both the census and WSD will be promoted by the Federal Service of State Statistics (Rosstat) in an integrated manner. The previous population census in this country was held in 2002.

In Botswana, 2011 Census materials will be distributed on World Statistics Day to all senior High Schools in the capital Gaborone to make pupils better understand the rationale of the forthcoming census. Botswana organized its last census in 2001.

Mauritius also plans to launch a “Census at School Project” on 20 October (WSD) to inform pupils about the 2011 census. The previous population census in Mauritius was held in 2000.
