Thanks to data collected through the latest Municipal Census, we were able to construct a comprehensive picture of the social and living conditions of the citizens in our region.
Only a census can provide such complete detail right down to the smallest area and the results are an essential tool for effective policy, planning and decision making purposes.
An accurate census and proper information collection is in everyone’s interests. It provides the knowledge so that public resources can be shared evenly across the Municipality and ensures that the municipal services are relevant to all the people who live here.
