Censimenti permanenti

Permanent census

The 2010-2011 census round ended an era; that of general censuses that, every ten years, would go deep into the heart of the country and describe its features in a thorough and detailed way.

In accordance with the European development policies and within its modernization program, Istat launches the permanent censuses project. The focus of this project is to integrate archive data, create statistical registers and conduct supporting statistical surveys, in line with the new organizational, technological and methodological model aimed at fully exploiting the potential of data available.

The objective is to increase the amount and quality of information and emphasize its multidimensionality, in order to reduce the response burden on economic operators and citizens and lower the overall cost of production of official statistics.
