Aliaksandr Lukashenka has set the next census in Belarus to take place on October 4-30, 2016.

BELTA reports quoting the press office of Lukashenka that his decree sets out the list of categories of persons who will be recruited by the local administrations as interviewers. Those persons will work pro bono but will be relieved from their duties at their work places with the same pay. They will also be insured from accidents.

Belarus had censuses in 1999 and 2009.
