Argentine president highlights importance of national census

Argentine president highlights importance of national census

Buenos Aires, May 18 (Prensa Latina) Argentine President Alberto Fernandez on Wednesday highlighted the importance of the national census, the first to include homeless people and questions on gender identity and ethnic background.

From 08:00 to 18:00 hours, local time, over 650,000 pollsters will collect data from more than 46 million people in person, a process whose first phase began on March 16 on digital platforms, according to the National Institute of Statistics and Census (INDEC).

This is a very valuable tool because it allows us to know how many people we are, how and where we live and, based on that, to think about how we can be better off, the president tweeted.

It will record the present for the Argentina of the future. It is not a statistic, it is a painting about us, which includes us, recognizes us and embraces our diversity, he added.

Moreover, he called on citizens to welcome those who will carry out the census, thus “exercising a civic right and duty and contributing to the construction of a better country.”

Twelve years have passed since the last census. Much has changed since then, so much so that now we can do it on our own digitally and just hand in a receipt. I know that the results will reflect all those changes, he said.

On the other hand, he recalled that registration, carried out on October 27, 2010, coincided with the death of former President Nestor Kirchner.
