Rosstat allowed the Russians called on the census of elves or goblins, and will not have to deal with them. This was announced by Deputy head of Department Pavel Smelov, reports RIA Novosti.
Smelov said that people who prefer so to call it, on the previous census was only 1024 people in the whole country. “147 million is quite a few people,” he said. The Deputy head of Rosstat added that such phenomena occur in different countries.
He also said that the accuracy of data is important when conducting a census, as they will help the authorities to draw up plans for development of territories.
On 29 June the head of Rosstat Pavel Malkov announced that the all-Russia population census will take place in April 2021, but not in October 2020. While in remote areas the census takers will start working in October 2020. Digital census was planned to run from 1 to 31 October, but in February it became known that suppliers of tablets for the census have not yet received the desired amount of components for the devices, because the Chinese authorities have imposed a quarantine in Hubei province due to the coronavirus.
