Locals’ thoughts on Census 2022


It’s officially a week since the launch of Census 2022 on 3 February 2022. This year’s Census will be the first digital population count and will give respondents the option to complete the questionnaire with or without the assistance of a fieldworker.

According to www.census.statssa.gov.za, this will allow respondents to access the questionnaire remotely; thus, enabling Stats SA to reach populations countrywide. Blaine Jones of Bloemfontein Courant took to the city streets to quiz locals about this year’s Census.
