"We have established the actual number of people living in Ukraine. We used several methods, and all methods yielded approximately the same result. Next week, I hope we can share our first data," said Dubilet.

At the same time, the minister pointed out that the margin of error in electronic census is lower than that in the traditional census.

"My personal opinion is that a traditional census isn't necessary. This is extra money, extra expenses for the budget, which bring ambiguous results," he added.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on December 1, a trial population census was launched in Ukraine, which is a preparatory stage for the 2020 All-Ukrainian Population Census.

The country held its first and only full-fledged census back in 2001.
