IMPACT OF POPULATION GROWTH ON DEVELOPMENT

Smart Cities versus making Existing Cities smarter!

The first reports covering the results of Census 2022 were released in October 2023. Most of the feedback and reports at that stage referred to broad population numbers and demographic information. The release of the census data on subur-ban level is still outstanding and only expected later this year .
Concerns were raised regarding the accuracy of the census information. However, based on verifications and follow-up sample surveys the level on a macro and mu-nicipal level can be regarded as fairly accurate and usable. Opportunities still exist to sort out differences in terms of Census 2022 data, before the final release. This will hopefully clarify many of the uncertainties.
