Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) has 8 wings. One of those is Census Wing, which is responsible for conducting three decennial censuses: the Population and Housing Census, the Agriculture Census, and the Economic Census.


After the liberation of Bangladesh the first Population and Housing Census was carried out in 1974, the first Agriculture Census in 1977 and the first Economic Census in 1986.


Since Independence there have been five Population and Housing Censuses with the last one completed in 2011; four rounds of Agriculture Census, with the latest one in 2008 and only just two Economic Censuses in 1986 and 2003. It is anticipated that the next Economic Census will be carried out in 2013.
