Census 2023 advances in Uruguay

Montevideo, Jun 24 (Prensa Latina) The 2023 Census is moving forward today in Uruguay, after three weeks of territorial deployment of activists and in its on-site phase.

The director of the National Statistics Institute (INE), Diego Aboal, informed that a total of one million addresses have been visited out of a total of approximately 1,700,000.

Aboal detailed that around 70 percent of the private homes have already been censused and in some 30 localities of the country the progress of the survey is higher than 99 percent.

The INE director said that the possibility of responding to the census online is still active, using the housing code established in the digital document for this purpose.

Data on housing and other data related to daily life, as well as data on the inhabitants and the population, will provide necessary information for the government and the State in order to plan future policies.

Uruguay is home to an estimated 3.5 million people, although this South American country, which receives an influx of foreign migrants, also faces emigration of its citizens.
