The Zimbabwe National Statistics Agency (ZimStat) with support from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has launched the key findings from three thematic reports produced from the Zimbabwe 2012 Census. The thematic reports focusing on Mortality, Nuptuality & Fertility and Population Projections provide a detailed analysis of data collected during the 2012 Census Report. The results of the 2012 Census were released in December 2013. The launch of these thematic reports is the last specific objective of the 2012 Population Census of producing national population projections to enhance future planning. Statistics are a vital tool for economic and social development and reliable and timely data can help Zimbabwe in the formulation of development policies and programmes. This fact sheet captures key findings and projections from the reports.
