Nigeria’s population censuses, however, have been conducted erratically and at intervals that are longer than the United Nations’ recommended 10 years, despite the country’s prominent position on the world demographic map. Prior population counts were taken in 1991, 1973, and 1963, making the most recent one (16 years ago) in 2006.

He emphasized that “this inconsistent and protracted period of Nigerian census gathering has deprived the country the enormous benefits of full baseline data for evidence-based decision-making.”

The state director said that foreign organizations and communities are supporting the exercise but added that knowledge of the number, distribution, and socioeconomic makeup of the national population is necessary for planning.

“History of Population Censuses in Nigeria and Structure and Mandate of the National Population Commission.” She explained that the media has the ability to inform and reach people even in remote areas.

“Technological Innovation in the 2023 Population and Housing Census,” and “How to Generate Media Content on the 2023 Population and Housing Census.”
