The Census of Somalia will be taken in two parts.  The first part will be taken in November of 1986 and will cover all the settled areas of Somalia.  These include the capital Mogadishu, large towns, and villages in the 86 districts of Somalia.  The census of settled areas will begin on November 12, 1986; this date was chosed because it is just prior to the prophet Muhammed’s birthday and so would be a date easily recalled by most of the population (like Christmas in the U.S.).  The census of settled areas will be conducted in 15 days and should be complete by the end of November, 1986. The second part of the census will be taken February 1-15, 1987; this part will be a census of nomads.  Although several different methodologies were considered for taking the census of nomads, the Central Department of Statistics settled on a water point approach.  This entails stationing enumerators at each watering point for the entire census period and having them interview nomads as they bring their livestock in for watering at each point.
