As Rwanda’s Presidency revealed, ’President Kagame and First Lady Jeannette Kagame were enumerated as the National Institute of Statistics (NISR) started to conduct the fifth Population and Housing Census’. Details about the first family were recorded by Yusuf Murangwa, the Director General of NISR.
A photo posted on Twitter along with the message shows President Kagame and Mrs Jeannette Kagame seated along with an enumerator registering the first family’s details.
Murangwa also enumerated President Kagame as the census took place for the fourth time.
At the time, he revealed that Kagame gave him enough time to record information about his family.
Murangwa said that the census has to last between 30 and 45 minutes.
The fifth Population and Housing Census concerns every Rwandan and all foreigners and guests present at home during the night of census.
The night of census is the night of 15th leading to 16th August 2022.
All the answers during the census to be carried out from 16th to 30th August 2022 will be based on records of census night. That is why Rwandans are urged to take note of the census night date and remember to answer the questions accurately during enumeration.
Outcomes of the census will feature multiple aspects and characteristics of Rwanda’s population including demographic, social, economic and cultural characteristics.
Others include population structure and trends of fertility, mortality and migration, population projections, economic activities, housing characteristics, and indicators for particular groups of the population such as female, children, youth, elderly, and disabled persons
