The population census has started!
The 37th population census of Luxembourg, organized by STATEC in collaboration with the municipalities and Guichet.lu, has started on November 8th, 2021. The emphasis is placed on online participation. A virtual information session took place on November 8th to inform citizens about all the practical details, in particular on how to complete the online questionnaire on Guichet.lu. You can find the video of this information session on STATEC’s Facebook page.
From November 8th on, all households in Luxembourg will receive a letter sent by STATEC with the access codes necessary to access the online questionnaire. Between November 8th and 21st, households have the option of responding only by internet. From November 22nd on, participation via paper questionnaire is also possible*. This paper questionnaire will be distributed by enumerators only to households that have not yet responded online on Guichet.lu.
Online participation remains possible until November 28th. The paper questionnaire, meanwhile, must be completed by December 5th.
*Erratum: the date of June 14th mentioned in STATEC’s letter for sending the paper questionnaire is an error.
Why a census?
The objective of a census is to collect data on the population, households and dwellings, in order to anticipate the needs for land use planning, schools, nurseries, hospitals, retirement and care homes, housing etc.
We count, because you count!
If you don’t respond to the online questionnaire, you will receive the paper version from your census enumerator as of November 22nd without any action on your part.
You can answer the paper questionnaire in 5 languages: French, Luxembourgish, German, English and Portuguese.
If you wish to consult the questionnaire in a different language than the one given to you by your census enumerator, please click on the Pdf files below.
You can return your filled out paper questionnaire to your municipality, to your census enumerator, or send it via mail to STATEC, B.P. 304 – L-2013 Luxembourg.
