Korea conducts a nationwide population and housing census every 5 years. The 2010 survey has begun. This year, both foreign and local residents, will have the option of responding on-line or through personal interviews.
The Internet census will run until Oct. 31. Door-to-door personal interviews will be conducted during the first 15 days of November.
You should have received a form in the mail around mid-October from Statistics Korea. When you open it, most of the information will be in Korean, but at the top you will see 2010 Census Population and Housing Census in English.
You’ll also notice on one flap something that looks something like this:
잠여번호 AUV - LB3S - SY
Each household in Korea has its own 9-digit code for use on-line. If you prefer to participate via the Internet, go to census.go.kr.
Excepting diplomats and members of the military and their families, all foreign nationals residing in Korea, both illegal and legal residents, are expected to participate in the census.
If you didn't receive the document with your household code (or if, not realizing what it was, you did not keep it), a census taker from Statistics Korea will visit your house for an interview between 1 and 15 November 2010. That person may (or may not) speak English.
For more information about the 2010 Census, you can contact 080-200-1345. Press 3 for English.
