Name Myanmar’s first census in more than 30 years: A radical revision of the official population count

In 2014, Myanmar organized its first population census since 1983. The census results shed new light on the demography of a country for which very little information was previously available (see Box).[1] According to this new census, the country had 51.5 million inhabitants in 2014,(1) 15% fewer than the official estimate (61 million in October 2012).
