"One can know the spread of people from different languages, tribes, cultures and religions, and then work with demographers for projected population distribution until 2035, even for this project to be widened until 2045," he said.
According to the plan, the required enumerator is estimated at 100 thousand people. They will be selected to do the survey. Their energy comes from society.
