Are you counted people?

As we are aware, from the 6 of July until the 22nd of August all the census takers nationwide started to do their job to count and do ask the Malaysian to update the profile of each Malaysian. The census is very important to the nation since it is directly related to the indication on how Malaysian and Malaysia generally perform in the economy sector and other related sectors. People are urged to cooperate and not giving fake answers to the census takers for our own good. It is because under Article 17 (1) of the Census Act 1960, individuals who gave false information or refuse to cooperate with enumerators could be charged in court.

Historically, a census is the procedure of systematically acquiring and recording information about the members of a given population. It is a regularly occurring and official count of a particular population. The census in Malaysia is carried out every 10 years, like many nations, since 1960 (with the exception of the fourth census, which was carried out in 1991). The next census is carried out currentlly from July 6 to August 22, 2010, the most recent was in 2000. So, what are you waiting for people, do your job and fill the forms correctly; not for others benefit, but We, Malaysian.
