Iraq Postpones Its Census, Again

Iraq was supposed to conduct a census in 2007, but it has been put off repeatedly. The latest census date was supposed to be Oct. 24, but the government announced the count has been postponed until December because of tensions over control of land in the northern region. The last census, in 1987, tallied 16 million people, but the current total is believed to be 30 million, by some accounts.

We're sorry, but comments are closed.
