The First Population Census
  • The first Population Census was done by the
    British, in 1955/1956 and completed in a time
    spam of one year and a half. It had made
    remarkable use of traditional administration
    (chiefs of the tribes). The total population was
    10.1 millions and adjusted to 10.3 millions and
    was satisfactory to all types of people.

The Second population census
  • The Second population census was done in 1973 and
    was delayed for five years because of the war in
    the south (The Addis Ababa peace Agreement was in
    1972).The Total population in 1973 was 14.8
    millions. The first result was only 12.3 millions
    which is very much less than expected. It was
    unfortunate that the enumeration failed at the
    beginning to cover the camps in some Gezira
    areas and to cover comprehensively the Nomads.
    Adjustment had been made after post-enumeration.

The Third Population census
  • The third Population Census was conducted in 1983
    . The total population was 20.6 millions which
    was also adjusted to 19.1 millions. A notice was
    raised about accuracy in the South due to weak
    logistics . Some enumerators who found it
    difficult to walk for long distances had used the
    chiefs of the tribes to fill the forms on behalf
    of the households.

Fourth population census
  • The fourth Population Census was done in 1993 and
    had come up with a total Population of 24.9 and
    adjusted to 25.9 million . This count did not
    include the rural areas in the South because of
    war and no comprehensive coverage of the nomads
    had taken place due to lack of logistics . In the
    4th Population Census the proportion of the
    nomads was only 3 while it was 11 in the
    previous census. Over count was noticed in some
    areas by inhabitants in order to increase their
    sugar ration.

  • The 1956 Population Census was the most accurate
    census in Sudan compared with the others . Now
    this Population census has become the basis for
    all subsequent censuses.
