2

The Iraqi government has put off the overdue national census by one year, an official statement said.

With its last census held in 1997, Iraq had previously planned a new census for October 2020, which included the Kurdistan Region.

However, Kurdistan Region’s Board of Census said in a statement that Kurdistan’s planning minister, head of the census board, and Iraqi counterparts held a meeting to discuss the preparations for the long-overdue project.

According to the statement, the census has been postponed to the end of 2021 as the current situation does not allow conducting the project.
