Author: Thaqi, Shpend
Abstract: Registration as a statistical operation, reveals the real situation of the population in a certain time and serves as a base to conduct further demographic assessments by using the data on natural increment and migration balance. A Census is real picture of the territory of a country expressing the real situation over everything that deals with numbers and statistics of a country. In 2011, from the date 1-30th of April, Kosovo realized its first census, family economies and dwellings after 20 years. After the independence of Republic of Kosovo in 2008, the census was considered to have been the most important event and the most serious project of Kosovo institutions toward international obligations. The Kosovo Census has been a long journey toward its realization. Preparations for this registration started in 2003 and ended in year 2011. After the realization of the population census, many debates were initiated regarding its success and if the process had failed in different cities of Kosovo. The most contested issue was the case with Municipality of Prishtina, where the number of registered inhabitants was lower than expected, and as a result, it was questioned by the expert expectations for demography.
