Nepal’s national population census programme kicked off on Wednesday, with authorities mobilising 8,500 supervisors for collecting data from across the country.

The country's population is 26.5 million as per the 2011 census.

Under the first phase of census, households will be enlisted across the country from September 15 to October 4, 2021.

The supervisors will visit around seven million households for the purpose.
