Kiribati Population Census: 7th Nov. 2020
Provisional data from the 2020 Kiribati Population and Housing Census which follows the 2015 population census and is the 14th census in Kiribati overall. Census enumeration began on the 7th November 2020 and captured detailed demographic information for every province, district, island and village in the Republic of Kiribati.
The objectives of the Kiribati Census changed over time shifting from earlier years where they were essentially household registrations and counts, to now where a national population census stands supreme as the most valuable single source of statistical data for Kiribati.
One of the main sources of demographic and social-economic statistics in Kiribati is the population and housing census. Kiribati has been carrying out population and housing censuses in a “modern sense” at intervals of about five years since 1985. This 2010 Census is the first census to use the GPS to plot the positions of the households.
