96.67 pct of Perlis residents have completed Census 2020 – DOSM

KANGAR, Oct 23 — A total of 96.67 per cent of residents in Perlis have completed the Malaysian Population and Housing Census 2020 (Census 2020) so far.

State Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM) director A. Pathmavathi said the success was the result of field activities as well as through the telephone call method that had been vigorously implemented by the Perlis DOSM.

“The deadline to complete Census 2020 is on Oct 31, therefore we are currently in the midst of checking and validating all the information obtained,” she told reporters when met at a field session here, early this morning.

The Social Welfare Department and the Perlis Information Department also participated in the programme.

According to Pathmavathi, the homeless people were not exempted from being enumerated as their data is also important to be recorded.

“No one is left behind as requested by Chief Statistician Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Uzir Mahidin because no matter who they are, all are involved in the implementation of the census so that all government plans and policies can be carried out properly,” she said.
