LAHORE: The Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS) organised first sensitisation workshop regarding forthcoming 7th Population and Housing Census 2022 (the first-ever digital census in Pakistan) on Monday.

Punjab Local Government and Community Development Secretary Asad Rehman Gillani was the chief guest while Chief Statistician Dr Naeem uz Zafar with Muhammad Sarwar Gondal, Member Support Services/Resource Management, Ayazudin, Member Census and Surveys, Dr Amjad Javaid Sandhu, DG (Admin), Dr Syed Wasim Abbas Director/Incharge PBS Provincial office, Lahore, and senior officers from PBS Islamabad and Lahore hosted the event.

Commissioner Lahore Division Capt Muhammad Usman (R), representatives from Senior Member Board of Revenue (SMBR), secretary population welfare, secretary primary and secondary healthcare, and all commissioners and deputy commissioners and director general, Punjab Bureau of Statistics, attended the workshop.

While addressing the workshop, Punjab Local Government and Community Development Secretary Asad Rehman Gillani highlight the value of census and population data in evidence-based decision-making and appreciated the PBS working towards initiation of first-ever digital census in Pakistan. He also emphasized the cooperation of the commissioners and deputy commissioners for the successful conduct of the census in line with the instructions of federal government and the PBS.

Dr Naeem uz Zafar said that census was an important national activity and linked with resource allocation to provinces, representation in national/provincial assemblies and delimitation process. “Therefore, it was need of the hour to take provinces on board and address their grievances before conduct of census,” he added.

It may be mentioned that the PBS initiated a series of sensitisation workshops with chief secretaries, relevant secretaries and functionaries at provincial level. In this connection, the workshop aimed to inform participants about completed tasks so far as well as future strategies, plans, methods, and tools for successful completion of the census.
