After finally reaching an agreement for publishing the results of population census in B&H, deputy director of the Agency for Statistics of BiH, Miljan Popic, said that he thinks that the adopted decision on the processing of the data is not correct.
Popic disagrees on the matter of the adopted program of data processing, emphasizing that this is a repetition of attitudes. He believes that by using this type of processing, we will receive incorrect data and that the Law of Census will not be respected.
At yesterday’s press conference he said that the Agency for Statistics will violate Article 7, which defines who are residents of BiH, and that also Article 36 will not be respected, which gave the Agency task of using all available databases to come to accurate data.
“In this way, we will change the content of the census and then will remain a dilemma of who is responsible for this,” said Popic.
He emphasized that the control list will prove that there is deviation of over 10 %, which is much more than the international standard.
He said it was not true that the census of BiH cost 50 million BAM, and revealed the information that the census cost 35 million BAM.
“Even if the results did not get published, census would not be wasted as well as the money. These are valid data and they apply for 10 years until the next census,” said Popic.
At the end, he stated again that „these are incorrect data and that we will not have accurate data in the process of EU Integration.”
