Stats SA extends closing date for Census 2022 Household Registration to 5 February 2022
The closing date for Census 2022 Household Registration is extended to 05 February 2022 to allow more respondents to select their preferred mode to be counted during Census 2022. Respondents are required to register on https://getcounted.statssa.gov.za to have the option of completing the census questionnaire remotely. The remote data collection involves:
1) Respondents choosing self-enumeration, where they complete the questionnaire in the comfort of their homes, online (which will use no data). An online questionnaire will be sent to registered respondents to fill or;
2) they may choose to be interviewed over the telephone. They also need to register either online, with a Stats SA Fieldworker or a Call Centre Clerk in order for a Stats SA official to contact them and assist with filling the census questionnaire.
3) choose for a fieldworker to visit their household to conduct face-to-face interview to complete the census questionnaire with the respondent.
Fieldworkers will visit households that do not register and those that register but do not complete questionnaire online or by telephone within the designated time period.
