The Central Statistics Office has launched a helpdesk and app designed to give people help and support as they prepare to make their mark in Census 2016.
According to Deirdre Cullen, CSO senior statistician,“By participating in the census, we are helping to shape our understanding about life in Ireland in 2016, and show how Ireland has changed since the last census was taken in 2011. The census is also a fundamental part of our national heritage and collective knowledge. The 2016 census will take place exactly one hundred years to the day since the Easter Rising began, and the results will be of great interest to the historians of the future as they look back and reflect on life in Ireland in 2016”.
The Census 2016 helpdesk can be called on 1850 2016 04 and an online helpdesk is available on http://census.ie/helpdesk/
The census app is available on Apple and Android and can be found by clicking on the store links on the census.ie website.
