Myanmar to issue initial population report in August

YANGON, July 15 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar authorities will release in the last week of August the initial result of the 2014-nationwide population census conducted in March-April, local media reported Tuesday.

The 7-Day News said the final result is expected to be launched in early 2015.

The total cost of conducting nationwide census amounted to 58.5 million U.S. dollars with the financial support of five million USD from the United Nations, 15 million from Myanmar government and over 38 million from several European countries, the report said.

Myanmar's 2014 nationwide census covered 10.719 million households.

Myanmar's 12-day national census from March 30 to April 10, the first in three decades, collected data of current population, economic and social facts and figures, aimed at working out national development plan.

In the 1983 census, Myanmar's population stood at 35.3 million excluding an estimated 1.17 million (3.35 percent) non-census ones for security reasons.
