In the period from 21 September 2020 to 13 November 2020, a pilot survey is conducted for the purposes of the Census, which will take place in 2021. The pilot survey realization is based on the Act on Census and is a part of preparations for the real operation of the electronic population census. This pilot survey is carried out in two phases.

The first phase takes place in the period from 21 September to 27 September 2020, how to work with a form is mainly tested; its content, functionality, visual design, as well as the content, scope and placing of methodological explanations. The pilot's task is also to test a login to the portal, speed of the web application, data transfer, time needed to fill in the form, orientation in the form and the census monitoring.

The second phase of the pilot survey will take place from 2 November to 13 November 2020. It concentrates on testing field activities, i.e. census with the help of a mobile census assistant, monitoring of their work and logistics. In this phase, tasks of municipalities and call centres are also checked.

Suggestions and comments that will contribute to an improvement of the census process can be included in the feedback questionnaire. Data collected during the pilot survey are used only for the purposes of its realization and are fully subject to the personal data protection. A participation in the pilot survey does not replace a participation in the 2021 census.
