Opinions on the Execution of the 2012 Census in Tanzania
Tanzania’s fourth national census since independence started on August 26. The exercise is carried out every decade and it is an essential part of national development and establishing the number of Tanzanians in the soul of national development planning.
However, the census has not received universal support. We heard several members of the community threatening to boycott enumerators, and civilians, religious leaders and village chairmen in various parts of the country demanding not to participate in the census exercise.
In September, the Envaya team surveyed several CSO’s to get their opinions on the census. Read what they said, and participate in the discussion!
