Census nears completion

The Bermuda 2016 census is almost complete with 98 per cent of the island's residents counted.

According to the Department of Statistics, a number of issues will be addressed before the completion of a preliminary report in the autumn, including:

1) Data entry and processing;

2) Data verification and quality assurance, and;

3) Data tabulations, evaluation and data analysis.

Melinda Williams, Director of the Department of Statistics, said: “The completion of data collection is a key milestone in a population and housing census. However, much work remains in order to produce a quality publication containing preliminary results and my team is committed to achieving this goal.”

Michael Dunkley added: “I am pleased to announce a 98 per cent completion rate for the 2016 Census data collection.

“I am impressed with this completion rate and would like to thank all households, interviewers, businesses and the Department of Statistics staff who made this possible.”
