Description
The Republic of Korea will conduct a national survey of the general population as of October 1, 1966.

The national census has been held every five year in this country since it started in 1925 and this year it will be the 9th from the first census and the 4th after the Liberation from Japanese Imperialism. The returns of the census tell us many things - growth rate of population, its distribution and movement, birth rate and the employment status - and is used as valuable data for the far-ranging national policy-making, for instance, in establishing the legal number of voters for various election, in working our scientific economic development plan and the family planning and also in undertaking the comparative study of population with other countries.

Particularly in our country where agriculture is predominant, this is an important basic data for agricultural policy-making as well as for the planning of solving the housing problem that become ever acute by the increasing flow of population into urban area. The informations about individuals and corporations obtained from the census will be strictly kept secret, and only confined for the use of national policy-making.

Ministry of Communications will issue a stamp in honor of this census to awaken people to the importance and necessity of the census thereby enlisting the support and cooperation of the people for the successful conduct of the census.
