November 12, 2021

The Statistical Office of the SR won the second ITAPA award in the category - Best project of digitization of society. According to the TOP experts, we deserved this success for the 2021 Census project.

In the media, they wrote about us:

„ It does not always happen that the project influences the vast majority of the country's population. However, it happened in this case. For the first time in the history of Slovakia, field workers did not bypass people during the census, but the census took place exclusively online. This was enabled by a comprehensive project of the Statistical Office of the SR - Electronic 2021 Population and Housing Census from the workshop of BSP OFTWAREDISTRIBUTION. Among its advantages belonged also that it was able to integrate data from the employment database or the address register. And the result? 5,2 million enumerated Slovaks, which was the same success as the census of field workers, but significantly even more effective. And this fact was also appreciated by the professional public by awarding the second place in the category of the best digital projects in Slovakia this year. ‟

We are honored and grateful. For us, this award is a positive challenge for further quality work in favor of statistical production, including the census results.
