Ahmed Lahlimi Alami, the High Commissioner for Planning, announced that the pivotal meeting held in Rabat on Monday focused on the necessary preparations for the 2024 General Population and Housing Census (RGPH). This initiative aligns with the High Royal Instructions outlined in a letter from His Majesty King Mohammed VI to the Head of Government.

Lahlimi emphasized, in a press statement following the meeting chaired by the Head of Government Aziz Akhannouch and attended by the Minister of the Interior Abdelouafi Laftit, that all procedures related to the RGPH are driven by the Royal Directives.

He explained that the RGPH will involve all Moroccan households, which will be visited by trained census enumerators, both in person and remotely. These enumerators will be equipped with tablets that include the full program of questions and methods for processing responses, which will be directly transmitted to the data storage center at the High Commission for Planning.

The RGPH is a nationwide operation, with the role of the High Commission for Planning and the census enumerators closely tied to each family, Lahlimi assured.

According to a statement from the Department of the Head of Government, this meeting examined various practical arrangements for organizing the census operation. The High Royal Instructions emphasized the need for an innovative approach, utilizing technological tools for data collection and processing, and an ambitious scope that includes new topics such as the comprehensive societal project of social protection, which His Majesty the King, may God assist Him, prioritizes with His high attention.
