The government has submitted to parliament a bill on the Central Statistical Office’s (KSH) next national census scheduled for the summer of 2021.
National censuses have been held in Hungary every ten years since 1870, the bill notes.
In the bill’s justification, Gergely Gulyás, the head of the Prime Minister’s Office, said the census will be able to supply detailed information on Hungary’s population, demographic situation, national and religious composition, public health situation, educational attainment levels, employment and unemployment levels, household and family trends and living standards.
Under the bill, the census will have to be carried out between May 1 and June 20.
According to the last census, Hungary had a total population of 9.981.865 in October 2011.
Data of the Central Statistical Office shows a population of 9,778,000 in January 2018.
