2021 national census: some 300,000 online forms submitted so far

Some 300,000 electronic forms have been submitted so far in the online national census, the head of the Czech Statistics Office, Marek Rojíček, told the Czech News Agency on Sunday.

The 2021 Czech national census was launched at midnight Saturday, but had to be temporarily suspended due to overloading of the server.

Czech citizens and foreigners with permanent residency or living here for more than 90 days as of the start date must complete the survey by May 11 or face a fine of up to 10,000 crowns. The deadline for submitting online forms is April 9.
