Statement by the Park Census Office regarding the protest at our headquarters

Since the morning of 5 April 2018, a protest has been growing outside the the Park Census Office headquarters. This protest, led by Reekabilly singer and composer, Faramund Stinktier, has gained momentum and we at the PCO believe we must address the issues regarding the 2018 census that have been brought forth.

Since the first census of 2006 (24 AZ), the Park Census Office has endeavoured to bring fairness and accessibility to the work involved in counting the number of Animals who call The Park their home.

The goal of any census is to provide an accurate tally and, subsequently, a full portrait of the population residing within its established boundaries. The resultant portrait from that tally must be derived from, among other attributes, the species to which each Animal belongs. The reason for this is not a sinister one. Indeed, the opposite it true, for we cannot ensure that Park citizens will benefit fully from Park life unless we are certain to which benefits each is entitled. Some of these benefits—but not all—are associated with Animals' species.

We fully understand the position on species identification that is held by Faramund Stinktier and other Animals and we will make every effort to accommodate that position. The 2018 Park Census, however, will continue to include the question regarding species and Animals are free to respond in whichever way they deem appropriate.

Update on 2018 Park Census

The Park Census Office (PCO) is happy to announce that we are in the final stages of developing the 2018 Census (36 AZ).

The new census will be taken during the first nine months of 2018 and will reflect the changes in The Park's population over the past decade, including species-identification, physical, mental, and economic well-being, family size, and participation in Park life. 

An optional part of the census will include questions regarding political preferences and the economic state of The Park.

Introduction

Herewith, The Park Census Office (PCO) releases the first data from the 25 AZ Census, covering Park population, dwelling counts, and employment trends.

Between the institution of zoocracy and 25 AZ, The Park's population increased 454%. International migration fueled five-eighths of The Park's population growth, while higher levels of reproduction, coupled with lower levels of infant and adult mortality, also accounted for this rise in population.

Data still to be released include income statistics, business and trade figures, manufacturing statistics, family stability figures, health and welfare, age and longevity, and species-identification responses.
