"For the first time, and the BVI is the only country doing this, we will be using a computerized tabulation process, which will allow us to have running totals every day," according to Mr. Otto O'Neal, Head of the DPU.The last census was done in 1991 and the population was put at just about 16,700 persons.That figure had grown from 11,000 in 1980.

Mr. O'Neal pointed out that a map has to be produced as a guide for the enumerators with every house in the territory.The census would aim to cover every dwelling place (including the prison, hotels and the hospital) on every island and also every yacht in the BVI during this period."While there is really no way to ensure that everyone is enumerated, we feel that as long as we have our people well trained, we expect that they would do a good job," the Deputy Director of Planning for Statistics told the Island Sun.
In the last census, there was a 3% undercount.According to the DPU officials, one of the difficulties they would face is not on land but with people moving around on sea.Another is with the Spanish speaking population.

According to Otto O'Neal, director of the BVI Development Planning Unit, the census usually is taken every 10 years, but the Caribbean fell behind.The latest census actually was due in 2000.
In the BVI, the initial field work for the census was done between April and May 2001.
However, O'Neal said, census takers noticed discrepancies from previous years when studying the data.He said some areas registered no growth where there was obvious growth, such as in East End, Tortola, and The Valley, Virgin Gorda.
O'Neal said the problem arose when previous census takers could not find residents at home and did not return to complete field work.

"Between then and now, we've been editing and ensuring, for example, that we had no pregnant males or 10-year-olds with a college degree," O'Neal said.
The process also involved an analysis of the data, he said.
O'Neal said that he received the summary of the final report on Thursday and that a document is being prepared for submission to the Executive Council.
Following Executive Council approval, the report will be taken to the Legislative Council.After passing that stage, it becomes a public document.
O'Neal said the entire process likely will be finished by June.
The 1991 population of the BVI stood at less than 17,000.The 2001 figure, not yet officially released, rose to 23,300.
O'Neal said the yearly population estimate - plus or minus 700 people - is taken at midyear.It takes into consideration immigration data, labor statistics, number of births and number of deaths, Social Security information, entry records for the school system and other data."The 2005 population is therefore estimated to be around 27,000," O'Neal said.
