Census in Malta

The Census of Population and Housing is a nationwide exercise which is generally carried out approximately every ten years. It is an official measure of persons, households and dwellings in Malta and Gozo, taken at a point in time. Official censuses in Malta date back to 1842, with the 2011 Census being the 17th in the series. The last enquiry incorporates detailed results, compilations and cross-analyses of the data collected through the Census carried out across the Maltese Islands on 20 November 2011. It provides definitive statistics on the demographic and social condition of residents and households, including information on housing and amenities at a national, regional and local level.
