PUTRAJAYA: The implementation of the second phase of the Malaysian Population and Housing Census 2020 which involves face-to-face interviews will be rescheduled by the Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM), says Chief Statistician and Census 2020 Commissioner Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Uzir Mahidin.
The rescheduling of the second phase of the census, which was initially set from Jan 20 to Feb 6, had to be made following the Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s latest announcement on the implementation of the movement control order.
“The new dates for the nationwide Phase Two of the Census 2020 will be announced soon, ” he said in a statement.
Mohd Uzir said in support of the efforts to curb and break the chain of Covid-19 infection, the DOSM was also in the midst of reviewing the census operations.
“Those who have yet to complete the census can take this opportunity to do so, ” he said. — Bernama
