Kuczynski Launches Peru Census

LIMA – Peru’s 12th population census was launched on Sunday with the task of surveying the country’s more than 30 million citizens, who may not change their locations from 8 am until 5 pm on Sunday.

Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski was the first citizen to be tabulated, along with his wife, and estimated that the Peruvian population had risen to 31.8 million, a prediction that will be born out, or refuted, within a month, when the gathered information is processed.

The members of the president’s cabinet will supervise the census in several regions of the country, where authorities have insisted on the need for the public to abide by the restriction on remaining in place while the enumeration is carried out.

More than a million census-takers were deployed on Sunday in the country’s urban areas, while the rural towns will be handled over the next two weeks.

Tourists may move around the country normally at airports and train stations, but Peruvian citizens who are traveling will be tabulated at whatever locations they may find themselves.

Workers who need to go to their workplaces on Sunday, including doctors, watchmen and security personnel, as well as reporters, were given the opportunity to be tabulated earlier and have received special permission to move about the country on Sunday.
