Census2022: Three Important “Location” Parameters That Are Needed

29

According to the Chairman of the National Population Commission (NPC), the National Population and Housing Census would commence by May 2022. But there were some mistakes they made in the Population Census of 2006 which I hope they should correct this time around. In the last census of 2006, the information about “Place of Birth” and “Place of Origin” were not requested for by the enumerators,, which is very wrong, since the official forms to be filled by Nigerians keep having “place of origin” in them. Here are the three “Location” Parameters which are very Necessary to be obtained for Each Individual in this upcoming Census. 1. Place of Residence (Town, LGA, State). 2). Place of Birth (Town, LGA, State). 3. Place of Origin (Town, LGA, State). As for persons whose parents are still alive, they should also give the information about the place of residence of their parents. The same thing for married persons who are not living together. As for parents who are not living together with their children (or any of their children), they should also give information about the place of residence of their child (or children). These parameters would provide good information about the migration patterns of the citizens within and around the country, as well as provide good background control information for urban and rural development strategies.
