Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, January 30, 2020 – Croatia will conduct a population census in the spring of 2021, and on Thursday the government sent a bill to parliament regulating this most comprehensive and complex statistical survey of the population, households and homes in the country.

The census will be carried out from April 1 until May 7, 2021 in two stages. In the first stage, from April 1 to 10, citizens will be able to enter their details in the e-Citizen system, while from April 16 to May 7 census takers will visit households that did not fill in the census form electronically.

The census is organised, coordinated and conducted by the National Bureau of Statistics (HGK) in cooperation with state administration and local and regional government authorities.

177.3 million kuna (24 million euro) has been set aside in the state budget for this purpose.

Sixteen censuses have been conducted in Croatia to date: eight between 1857 and 1931 and as many between 1948 and 2011. No census was taken in 1941 because of the Second World War.
