Postponement of the Population Census
The Budgetary Law for 2021 was sanctioned without the restoration of the original budget of R$2 billion for the 2021 Population Census.
As announced today by the Ministry of Economy´s Special Secretary of Treasury, Waldery Rodrigues, the budget for 2021 does not fund the Population Census and, therefore, it will be postponed.
The IBGE will work with the Ministry of Economy in order to plan and carry out the Census in 2022, according to a schedule to be established with that Ministry.
Concerning the selection process of Census agents - Municipal Census Agents (ACMs), Supervisor Census Agents (ACSs) and Enumerators -, the IBGE will announce the guidelines as soon as possible.
