2011 National Report (New)

The National Population and Housing Census for Papua New Guinea is one of the important national events on the calendar of the country every ten years. The country’s fourth National Population and Housing Census was supposed to be held in July 2010. However, the event was deferred to July 2011 to provide sufficient preparation time. The first three censuses of the country were held in 1980, 1990 and 2000.

The National Report and the 22 Provincial Reports form the major public release of information obtained from the 2011 Census. The reports provide information at the national, provincial, urban and rural geographic sectors in the form of statistical tables, charts and figures with basic descriptive comments to assist data users interpret and use the census data. The focus of the reports is on citizen population who were enumerated in private dwellings throughout the country.
