I was not counted in census: BBS secretary

Mohammad Yamin Chowdhury, secretary of the statistics and information management department, has said, “I was not counted in the 2011 census.”

He was speaking at the inaugural function of the zonal operations (first) training programme at the auditorium of Bangladesh Statistics (BBS) Bhaban at Agargaon in the capital on Monday (January 18).

Planning Minister MA Mannan was present as the chief guest on the occasion.

BBS Director General Tajul Islam presided over the function.

The census will be held from October 25 to 31 this year.

The secretary said, "The main census was scheduled in this month. But due to corona it will be held in October. Data is to be collected patiently using the device. Accurate statistics will end misunderstandings.”

A total of 144 zonal officers from all over the country are participating in this training programme.

Census and House Census 2021 activities will be completed in four stages.
