Togo's fourth general population census will take place on Nov. 6-19, the West African country's National Statistics Bureau announced on Monday.
A pre-census campaign to sensitize the population was launched on Monday by the National Statistics Bureau in the Togolese capital Lome.
The operation will target people who have stayed on the Togolese territory for at least six months.
The census will enable Togo to have more credible data of its population for development policies.
The census results will also be used in the election registration to avoid disputes, which in the past led to violence.
Togo, a country of 56,785 square km, put its population at 6.6 million in 2007 after a national census.
