National Population Commission to update Enumeration Area Demarcation

The National Population Commission in Nigeria will commence the updating exercise of the Enumeration Area Demarcation, EAD, in some previously demarcated local government areas in all the 36 States of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, ahead of the 2022 National Population and Housing Census in Nigeria.

The EAD updating exercise will cover LGAs previously demarcated under phases 3 to 9A EAD between February 2017 and January 2020 covering 170 LGAs across all the States of Nigeria and the federal capital city.

The objective of the EAD updating exercise is to bring the EA maps up to date with the current realities on the ground using the latest EADPad application and updated methodology to recapture and analyze the rate of change in the EA, building density and uses, household numbers, and sizes and other visible physical changes on the ground.

This was made available in a media statement issued by the Director Public Affairs department of the Commission, Dr Isiaka Yahaya.

He added that “the updating exercise will commence from 5th March 2022 to 1st April 2022.

A 2-day refresher training will be organized for Demarcators and Supervisors on EAD updating techniques, methodology, and workflow”.

And that “it will involve completion of mop-up exercise for some areas which could not be demarcated in previous phases of the EAD due to communal dispute and security threat”.

Yahaya also said that “the completion of roads and buildings vectorization exercise will also be carried out simultaneously with the EAD updating exercise.

The populace in the selected LGAs will be mobilized for the smooth implementation of the EAD updating exercise.
