Cambodia launches one-month intercensal economic survey

PHNOM PENH, March 1 (Xinhua) -- Cambodia on Saturday began a one-month intercensal economic survey, aiming to update basic statistics on establishments and enterprises in the country.

Planning Minister Chhay Than announced the survey launching and called for cooperation among the public, particularly enterprise owners and local authorities in order to lead the survey to success.

According to a press release, the survey would be conducted on 10,000 establishment and enterprise samples throughout the country to update fundamental statistics on the current status of business activities and the number of employees.

"The survey will provide fundamental statistics for Cambodia, which is useful for various users such as policy makers, government officials, organizations, private sectors, researchers and development partners," the minister said.

He said the intercensal survey would cost 315,000 U.S. dollars, funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency.

Cambodia held the first-ever economic census in 2011, which found that the country had 505,134 business establishments employing 1.67 million people -- of whom 61 percent or 1.02 million were female.
