2021 Preliminary Census Results

Last year, the Czech Statistical Office conducted the country's first online census.  It's amazing to me that I've been living long enough here in Czechland that this was my second census.     

The Czech Statistical Office was created back in 1969.  I was told that from 1969-1995, some statistical control was actually in the hands of local governments but as of 1996 the CZSO has complete control over statistics for the entire country.

Here are some of the preliminary results.

About half of the population, 48,2%, live in one of four regions: Prague, Central Bohemia, South Moravia, and Moravian-Silesia.  Prague has the lowest average age (41,4 years), the lowest amount of Czech citizens (86,1%) and the most university-educated people over 15 years of age (33,7%).

The national average age is 42,7 years with women slightly older than men at 44,1 and 41,2 years respectively.  For people 15 years and older, 32,1% are single and 45,6% are married.  I don't know what category the other 22,3% fall into.  Perhaps a combination of registered partnership or widowed.

Foreigners make up 4,7% of the population.  Foreigners from within the EU make up 1,5% of the population while foreigners from outside the EU, like me, account for 3,2%.  The largest group of foreigners come from Ukraine (1,4%), followed by Slovakia (0,9%) and Vietnam (0,5%).

It will be interesting to see the full results of the survey once they're available.

Here's about the 2011 census and the 2011 census results.
