2010 Population and Housing Census Preparations

October 10, 2010 (10-10-10) is the Cayman Islands' Census Day

The Population and Housing Census (PHC) for the Cayman Islands will start on October 10, 2010. The PHC will be conducted by the Economics and Statistics Office (ESO) through 263 enumerators who will be deployed to about 274 enumeration areas in all districts. The Census will run through November 2010.

Approval for the conduct of the PHS was officially announced on 26 March 2008. Since then, preparation by the ESO was supported by the Census Advisory Committee and its sub-Committees.

The United Nations recommends all countries to carry out a population and housing census every tenth year and the 2010 round of censuses should be carried out during the period 2005-2014. Earlier population censuses in Cayman Islands have been conducted in 1802, 1891, 1911, 1921, 1934, 1943, 1960, 1970, 1979, 1989 and 1999 (10 October).
