Second stage data of All-Russian census results to be released in September

The data of the second-stage results of the All-Russian population census will be released at the end of September, Russian Minister for National Policy Vladimir Zorin told journalists on Thursday.

The data will include the ethnic composition, household, education and age of the Russian citizens. The first-stage results published in the spring 2003 contained the data on the number of permanent population, the sex composition, the number of urban and rural residents.

According to the preliminary results, Russian population totals 145,200,000 people.

The final results of the census will be ready by the end of December 2003, Zorin added.

The last census conducted in 1989 officially registered 126 peoples in the country. However, this census's preliminary results show that the country has 170 ethnic groups and 25 sub-ethnic groups. Moreover, the current census registered 880 "self names" of some or other social or national groups the respondents identify themselves with.
