2018 Malawi Population and Housing Census - Preliminary Report

2018 MPHC CoverThe 2018 Population and Housing Census (2018 PHC) was conducted by the National Statistical Office (NSO). The 2018 PHC is the sixth in the series having conducted the previous ones in 1966, 1977, 1987, 1998 and 2008. The 2018 Population and Housing Census was the first one to be conducted on the Computer Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI) programme. The data was collected and captured on tablets and transmitted to the NSO server electronically via the internet. This process is very efficient and reduces the time for data processing and cleaning as these processes are done at data capture stage in the field.

The 2018 PHC was implemented between 3rd and 23rd September 2018 and this report presents preliminary results that NSO has produced. The selected tables include interalia total population, intercensal growth rate, population distribution, and population density. The other tables with detailed analysis will appear in the main report expected to be released end of April 2019 and over 15 Thematic Reports expected to be released between May 2019 and April 2020.
