2008 North Korea Census

  (Redirected from 2008 North Korean census)

The 2008 North Korea Census was a census conducted by the Central Bureau of Statistics over a period of 15 days from 1–15 October 2008.

The total population of the country at that time was 24,052,231 inhabitants (11,721,838 male and 12,330,393 female).[1] The results of the census are thought of as plausible by foreign observers.[2]

The census was widely advertised in propaganda. This resulted in a detailed survey.[3]

The 2008 census is the latest census of North Korea. The next census was scheduled for 2018.[4]
