The National Population Commission has commenced a training workshop to conduct trial census in nine local government areas across Lagos State.

The Federal Commissioner of NPC, Lagos State, Bimbola Salu-Hundeyin, disclosed this in a statement on Monday.

According to a statement made available to The PUNCH, Salu-Hundeyin made this known during a 12-day training to equip 104 field personnel, consisting of facilitators, supervisors and enumerators drawn mainly from communities within the selected areas.

He said, “The trial census, which is a dress rehearsal, is to evaluate all aspects of the census operations before the main census on a limited scale. The specific objectives are to assess the quality of the evaluation area maps, determine requisite educational qualifications for enumerators, estimate the workload of the enumerators and logistics support for the main census among others.

“The trial census in Lagos State will be conducted in one supervisory area in nine LGAs of the state with three LGAs selected in each of the three senatorial districts. The LGAs that will be covered are  Lagos Island, Surulere, and Apapa LGAs in Lagos Central Senatorial District; Alimosho, Ajeromi/Ifelodun and Ikeja LGAs in Lagos West Senatorial District; and Ibeju Lekki, Ikorodu and Kosofe LGAs in Lagos East Senatorial District.
