KIEV, December 21. /TASS/. Ukraine’s government has postponed a population census from 2016 to 2020, the press service of the cabinet of ministers said on Monday.
The census was initially planned for 2011. However it was postponed four times, first till 2012, then till 2013, till 2014 and finally till 2016.
The Ukrainian government refrained from providing reasons for the fifth postponement of the population census but experts say the most apparent reason is the lack of funds.
The first and so far the only population census in Ukraine was conducted in 2001. Back then, the number of Ukraine’s population stood at 48.457 million. The pervious census conducted in 1989, when Ukraine was a republic within the Soviet Union, put the number of its population at 51.7 million.
According to Ukraine’s State Statistics Service, the country’s population as of November 1, 2015 was 42.789 million people.
