National census covers expats for the first time

A national census will begin on November 1. Expatriates and residents from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan will be included in the census for the first time.

Foreign nationals need to provide information about their education background, occupation and purpose of stay.

Data collected from foreign residents who stay in Shanghai for more than six months is more important for population analysis than overseas tourists as they are considered long-term residents.

To prevent suspects from entering homes disguised as census workers, the identity information of census takers will be posted in the community bulletin board.

Census staff will also carry identification and have official badges so residents can check before letting them into their homes.
