The 2022 Census is going to be carried out from 15.05.2022. It is a census carried out by the statistical offices covering population, buildings and apartments, which is taken every 10 years in the EU.
For our student hall of residence, in particular, that means that all residents are going to be interviewed by survey officers (interviewers). Participating is compulsory and is laid down by law in the “Zensusgesetz 2022” [census act 2022]. So, it is not voluntary.
The questioning started on 15.05.2022 and will go on until approx. August 2022. The Munich Student Union has already informed its residents about the census in an email. You can find more information at the following links:
