The Government of Uganda, through the Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) is preparing to conduct the next National Population and Housing Census in August 2012. The last such census was conducted in September 2002. The census preparatory activities are numerous including the census mapping that was officially launched by Hon. Aggrey Awori, Minister for ICT who represented H.E the President of Uganda on the occasion of celebrating the Africa Statistics Day on 18th December 2009 in Kapchworwa District.
Since then, a lot has been achieved and therefore it is the duty and pleasure of the census 2012 team to share these plans, achievements and challenges with all the stakeholders. UBOS will therefore use a number of communication channels to disseminate the information in order to educate, inform and create a census knowledgeable society.
