Census release delayed again

The results of the Cayman Islands’ 2010 census won’t be released until the next sitting of the Legislative Assembly, likely in January 2012.

Officials at the government’s Economics and Statistics Office said Friday they would not release the full results of the census until the report is tabled – made public – in the Legislative Assembly.

That was expected to occur last week, but the report was not presented to members of the house.

A preliminary copy of the census was made public in March, it gave brief details of population figures and some jobs numbers.
