The Fiji Bureau of Statistics says to date, their best estimate would be around 98% coverage around the country during the enumeration period.

Senior Statistician Emali Soderberg says they are doing a wrap up of the enumeration by doing a second sweep across the country concentrating in the urban areas till this Saturday.

Soderberg says the issues they faced in the urban areas require them to do a second sweep to ensure they enumerate everyone.

Soderberg says there were times when some households that were visited during the enumeration week did not have the occupants at home and this could be due to the fact that they were at their place of work. 

She says in addition to that, there were times when flats attached to households were not enumerated as well so households will be revisited this week to ensure that they are enumerated.
