The Central Bureau of Statistics is asking all households to cooperate with the 2020 Census
The Central Bureau of Statistics wants to inform the Aruban community that there are only 3 weeks left for the 2020 Census. The 2020 Census will start upcoming October 1st.
A Census is a general population and housing count. In other words, during a Census everyone that, on October 1st, is living in Aruba for 1 year or more, or has the intention to live in Aruba for 1 year or more, will be counted.
Currently, Aruba is going through a difficult time, which makes it a particularly important moment to collect data of the real situation of the households in Aruba. CBS wants to ask for the collaboration of each household to cooperate with the 2020 Census.
The 2020 Census will consist of 2 parts:
1-10 of October 2020: Online Count
1-26 of November 2020: The count of households who have not participated in the Online Count
Households can have access to the online questionnaire by visiting the 2020 Census website www.census2020.aw and use their parcel number from WEB Aruba N.V.
Please bear in mind that the questionnaire should be finalized in one time. The parcel number for each household also could only be used once.
The 2020 Census questionnaire can be viewed on the website to be informed of the questions and to be prepared before filling in the questionnaire.
This will facilitate the process of completing the questionnaire. We will announce the official website launch when it is activated.
Households that do not have a parcel number from WEB could call the CBS to get an individual code to gain access to the questionnaire. The CBS staff will be available trough WhatsApp or phone. The number will be active from October 1st. You can also send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with the online questionnaire. This email is has already been activated.
CBS wishes to use this opportunity to encourage all households in Aruba to cooperate with the 2020 Census and to fill in the Census questionnaire online.
