Among them is the First Deputy Chief of the Presidential Administration of Kazakhstan, Dauren Abayev. He noted that the results of the census will allow assessing the success of the reforms and the effectiveness of the work of regional and district authorities.
“We are interested not only in how many of us there are, but also what are we like. The questionnaire contains a lot of questions, but not all of this data can be pulled from information databases. And the census is the most accurate sociology that will allow us to understand how the population really feels,” said Abayev.
The survey can be completed until October 30. Data collection is carried out in two ways: on sanaq.gov.kz website and by door-to-door rounds.
