Share Surveyors appointed by the Municipality of Catania, equipped with an Istat card, are carrying out the work of the third permanent census of the population and housing in 2021. The survey involves only a part of the citizens and of the municipal territory. Unlike the censuses of the past, when they were carried out every 10 years, permanent censuses are carried out annually and no longer involve all citizens and the entire municipal area, but from time to time only a part of them. The census operations will be completed on 23 December 2021. The purposes of the census surveys are: the production of a statistical information framework on the main structural characteristics of the population at national, regional and local level; determine the legal population of the territory; provide data and information useful for the revision and updating of municipal data registers; produce information on the number of homes and the characteristics of those occupied. The permanent census is divided into two different survey methods. The area survey, which will take place between 14 October and 18 November 2021, consists of a door-to-door survey of all the families present in a given area, carried out by a person in charge of the Municipality equipped with an identification card and a tablet. The survey from the list, for which the persons involved identified on a sample basis, will be contacted by Istat through a letter, in which the family will be invited to fill in the online questionnaire, in the period starting from 4 October to 13 December 2021. If it is not possible for the family unit contacted to reply via the web, operators will be available at the Ccr – Municipal Detection Center for any requests for assistance, tel. 095 7424421/095 7424361 The municipal statistics office is located at the management center San Leone in Pavilion D 1st floor in via Alessandro La Marmora, n. 23 with the days and opening hours, from Monday to Friday from 08:30 to 12:00 and on Thursday afternoon also from 15:30 to 17. In the event that there is no spontaneous response, the families will be reached at their homes by the detectors or they can be contacted by telephone by the municipal operators. The period envisaged for completing the questionnaires with the help of the surveyor is between 8 November and 23 December 2021. As in the past, families are also required to reply to the permanent census (according to the provisions Article 7 of Legislative Decree No. 322 of 6 September 1989), or the compilation and transmission, complete and truthful, of the questionnaires prepared by Istat. The census is a mandatory requirement and therefore the municipal administration recommends collaborating with the surveyors.
