In addition to this, information on various issues related to employment, education, income and the economy will also be collected so that the government can use the data to formulate economic policies of the people. The results of these data are in the form of population growth rate, poverty status, unemployment rate and various other information.

Data processing is carried out by BPS West Java
The level of data processing is an important step in determining how high the level of accuracy and accuracy of the prepared data is. While it was still the Central Bureau of Statistics, data processing was done manually using a calculator and an abacus as a calculating tool.
Now, data recording and processing have used modern methods, such as using computers. To be precise, from the 1960s onwards, the policy of using computers began to be implemented. However, at that time, the data recording was still manual, and then it was input into a computer.
Currently, all records are attempted directly using computer devices. Therefore, in the 2020 census, they were asked to fill the census online through the website and the West Java PBS application. Did you also participate in the 2020 census?
