Mr George Agbenyo, the Northern Regional Director for the Statistical Service has revealed that about 4,000 enumerators are being used in the ongoing Population and Housing Census in the region.
This among other things, he said, is making the enumeration process run smoothly as expected at the various districts.
Adding that the enumerators have not encountered any problems since the beginning of the listing stage, except at the Bimbila District where a resident refused to be enumerated.
According to him some areas including the Sagnarigu District, Tamale South and the Tamale Central have been discovered to have a huge population, hence more enumerators would be employed to support the process in those areas.
He cataloged the importance of the census, stating that government, International bodies and other organizations need them to plan for the good of the people.
Mr George appealed to stakeholders in the region to use their platforms to urge the public to avail themselves when the Statistical service enumerators encounter them.
