Director in charge of the national census, H.R. Gunasekara has told the media that once the census is completed, it will be used as the official data on demographic, social and population and the living patterns of Sri Lankans for the next decade

He has said that the census will be taken in three stages; mapping, the listing of buildings and enumeration of the population.

The Department has completed that first stage and is in the process of carrying out the second stage. The third is to be completed in a few weeks.-thesundayleader
