Directorate of Census, Registry & Identification
A population census, as defined by the United Nations, is the total process of collecting, compiling, evaluating, analyzing and publishing or otherwise disseminating demographic, economic and social data pertaining, at a specified time, to all persons in a country or a well-defined part of the country
Census plays an important role in the life line of every nation and so does registry and identification. The Directorate for Census, Registry and Identification collects, filters, analyzes, correlates and presents best statistics on the population at any given time. This is done through Citizen Registration, Identification and other strategies to keep the population in constant check.
Areas covered within the directorate include;
- Population Census
- Civil Registry
To ensure that initiatives are properly run and managed, the directorate, as well as the entire Department of Home Affairs, makes use of its young, smart, energetic, patriotic and outstanding brains to deliver the best service for the nation.
While pushing to meet up delivery expectations, the directorate produces, issues and accounts for National Identity Cards, Birth Certificates, Death Certificates, Marriage Certificates, Citizenship Certificates, Passports and other documents required by both citizens and immigrants resident within the country.
