Launch of the Citizen Data Update Project in Sharjah
The Department of Statistics and Community Development in the Emirate of Sharjah has launched a project to update the citizens’ data/information of the Emirate of Sharjah, which aims to update the living data of the citizens based on the results of the general population and housing census 2015, and to complete additional questions that were not included in the census.
The project aims at providing a new and updated database for decision-makers in the Emirate that reflects the changes taken over the last two years on the general characteristics of the population. Such changes will help providing developmental services to citizens and raise the standard of living of citizens. In addition it will cover new and important questions that were not included in 2015 census.
Text messages were sent on October 3rd of this month to all citizens of the Emirate and the heads of households on their phone numbers registered in the department’s database.
The call center staff, as well as some of the department’s collaborators, will contact these families and update their data/information which were collected earlier in census 2015, in addition to completing other new information that was not included in the census.
Worth to mention, that RealSoft and its sister company MobiSoft have successfully developed number of integrated and fully automated applications to serve the requirements of this project, that is currently being implemented in the Emirate of Sharjah .
