The results of the latest population census are expected to be released later this year.  The exercise which concluded in January is being finalized before the official figures, following the national count, are published by the Statistical Institute of Belize.  Diana Castillo-Trejo is the Acting Director General at S.I.B.

“We completed data collection in January, around mid-January.  Right now, what we are doing is some final cleaning up in the field.  We are doing some very limited revisits to a few households that we need to revisit and we are preparing for data processing.  Data processing of hundreds of thousands of records takes a while, so we are preparing for that.  We expect to be doing the data processing and this includes also making estimations for households that we were not able to reach because maybe we went and nobody was there and after repeated visits we couldn’t get in contact with them.  So we’ll have to make adjustments for things like that and all of that is a part of the processing of the data and the final estimates we expect to publish by the end of September of this year.”
