This Sunday October 22, from 8 a.m. until 5 pm. will be carried out the National Census 2017.
From 08:00 hours will be effective the order of “unmovability” since it is important that you stay in your home until 5:00 pm because the methodology of work requires us that there are no duplications or omissions or interference that could invalidate the census.
There are 47 questions prepared by the National Institute of Statistics and Informatics (INEI) for the census of Population, Housing and Indigenous Communities so you will have to stay in your home to answer the questions on the cédula, the forms that the enumerators bring, the questionnaire will be 20 minutes per family.
The question is what will happen to the tourists, the airport, the hotels? According to the head of the National Institute of Statistics and Informatics, Aníbal Sánchez “They are going to provide all the facilities to tourists, besides we are not talking about large numbers, there are 3 thousand to 5 thousand tourists in the whole territory. All archeological centers, ports and airports will operate” and companies will also have facilities to allow the transfer of people abroad and also within the national territory.
In the city of Cusco it is said that the airport will normally receive flights from different cities but passengers will not be able to leave the airport from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, there will be no transport throughout the city.
