Due to the epidemiological situation, a census, which was supposed to be conducted in Croatia from April 1st to May 7th, has been postponed. Varaždin County is one of four in which a trial census will be conducted next month.
Ten census districts were selected in different cities, municipalities and settlements. It will cover about a thousand households and just over two thousand people. Special attention will be paid to self-registration through the e-citizens application.
“It is our recommendation and invitation to citizens of Croatia to use this possibility to use the e-citizens application and register on their own. What is positive in the entire story is that every person who has access to the e-citizens system can register not only themselves, but all members of their household,” said the Director of the Croatian Bureau of Statistics Lidija Brković.
“What is a challenge is the fact that a certain number of people, unfortunately still the majority, do not have the e-citizens service activated. Until now a mere quarter of the Varaždin County population have registered on the e-citizens application and service, and only half of them, or 15% of the Varaždin County population use this application regularly,” said Deputy Varaždin County Prefect Robert Vugrin.
