AFRICA/EGYPT - Even the voice "religion" in the application forms for the next census

Tuesday, 21 February 2017

Cairo (Agenzia Fides) - For the first time in 30 years, the census of the Egyptian population, conducted by the Central Agency for public monilization and Statistics will also include a field for religious. Abu Bakr Gendy, appointed Head of the Central Agency for public mobilation and Statistics, said that the choice of religion in the census will be optional according to the international norms in the census population. The census will however offer useful elements to verify the real number of the various religious communities. In some areas of Egypt, the substantial increase in the number of Christian communities was not recorded in any way by the local authorities. Since the nineties, offices in charge of census and demographic statistics have not updated the data on the numerical size of the Egyptian Christian community, starting from the Coptic Church, which according to some analysts, in recent decades, has abundantly surpassed ten million.
