In accordance with the “Law on Statistics”, all legal entities, which are operating in Mongolia, must be counted every five years; subsequently, a census is taking place. This, the 6th census to be held, began on 1st April. During the previous census, which was held in 2011, some 65,200 entities were counted. Statisticians had anticipated that this number would have doubled; so far the General Authority for State Registration and Statistics has registered considerably more - over 150,000 entities. The census will last until the end of this month.
