In Zimbabwe, population census undertaking began as early as 1901 but was initially confined to Non-Africans. The population was enumerated for the first time in 1962, then in 1969 but at differing reference periods for Africans. The 1982 census was the first post-independence census with a national coverage. In accordance with the Census and Statistics Act [Chapter 10:29], ZIMSTAT conducts population censuses after every 10 years to provide information on demographic, social, economic and environmental statistic. The 2022 Population and Housing Census was the first digital census conducted through use of Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing system. This was in sync with the United Nations Principles and Recommendations for the 2020 round of Population and Housing Censuses Revision 3.
