In addition, 860,358 indigenous people (0.82% of the population surveyed so far) and 740,923 quilombolas (0.71%) were counted.

The most recent IBGE bulletin also pointed out that most of the questionnaires (99.5%) were answered in person, while 81,600 households chose to respond via the internet and 85,300 families by telephone.

Difficulty finding census takers

The IBGE’s difficulty in recruiting new census takers remains.

According to the institute, 48% of vacancies are available in the country.

The state with the greatest deficit of professionals is Mato Grosso, with 36.8% of the number of positions held.

Sergipe, on the other hand, has the smallest gap, with 68.8% of the positions occupied.

“We are thinking about new recruitment strategies and alternatives, in order to leverage and improve productivity in the states with the lowest percentage of the census population. Across the country, the IBGE has 95,448 census takers in action, 52.2% of the total number of available places.”, said Luciano Duarte, technical manager of the Census.
