Collaborative Efforts for Nigeria's First Digital Census: NPC and Ministry of Housing and Urban Development.


Earlier today, the Chairman of National Population Commission, Hon. Nasir Isa Kwarra led NPC delegation for a high-level interactive meeting with the Honourable Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Arc. Ahmed Musa Dangiwa and his team at the Federal Ministry of Housing and Urban Development office in Abuja, Nigeria.

The meeting was to discuss areas of collaboration towards the upcoming Nigeria Population and Housing Census, especially with regard to generating reliable, comprehensive and up-to-date housing data for housing policy design and planning.

By working together, the Commission will through the next census, provide the Ministry with credible and correct data to address housing deficit and other housing needs in the country.

In preparation for the forthcoming first digital and green census in Nigeria, NPC has through the Enumeration Area Demarcation (EAD), captured the information and geo-coordinates of all buildings in the country, totalling 65,475,250 buildings.
