Ukrainian Census (2020)

Chart of the population demographics of Ukraine, showing the decline in population from 1993 to 2012.

The 2020 Ukrainian Census (Ukrainian: Всеукраїнський перепис населення) will be conducted by the State Statistics Service of Ukraine. The last census (and so far the only census held in independent Ukraine[1]) was conducted in 2001; tentatively, the next census was supposed to be conducted ten years later, according to standards set by the United Nations.[2]

However, the census was delayed every year, until September 2013, when the second Azarov Government set the census' date in 2016.[2] In December 2015 the second Yatsenyuk Government postponed the census' date to 2020.[1]

The 2001 census recorded the population of Ukraine as 48,457,100 people.[3] By 2013, that population had dropped down to 44,573,205.[4]
