YANGON, Aug 2 (Bernama) -- Myanmar will conduct a nationwide population census in March-April 2014, involving international assistance, China's Xinhua news agency said quoting official media's report on Friday.

The census-taking process will last from March 30 to April 10 in 2014.

Of the expected cost of US$58.5 million for the process, Myanmar's government committed US$15 million, while the United Nations pledged US$5 million for materials and courses.

Donations of US$2.8 million by AusAID and US$16 million by the British government for the census have been received, the report said, adding that coordinations are being made for receiving donations from Norway and Switzerland.

According to the report, experts from 13 countries and UN statistics division, UNFPA, ESCAP and the World Bank will also help Myanmar in the process.

Myanmar last took census in 1983.
