Sharjah Census 2015 pilot phase kicks off

(Sharjah) – The Sharjah Department of Statistics and Community Development, DSCD, has started implementation of the trial phase of the Sharjah Census 2015, which will officially begin in October.
The four-day pilot phase, which will run until Thursday, involves the census of buildings, homes and commercial properties in four key areas in Sharjah; Al Majaz 2, Al Rahamaniya 5, Sharjah Industrial Area and Al Rolla.
The Sharjah Census staff visited a selection of residents and establishments in the four areas where they collected preliminary information and data about the number of members of each family and how many families are living in each housing unit. In addition to collecting the name, telephone number and Emirates ID number of the interviewed person.
During the first two days, the Sharjah Census team received a great response from residents in the designated areas where they provided them with all the information needed. In a similar vein, the residents showed their eagerness to fully co-operate with the Sharjah census team for the nation’s higher national interest and the importance of the census, which will reflect positively on the life of Emirati citizens, residents and visitors alike.
