What happens if you are not at home during the 2022 Census in Argentina? Do they charge you a fine?


Answering the census questions in Argentina is mandatory, if you do not do it, or if you lie in your answers, you can receive a fine.

This is what the census questionnaire looks like.


(CNN Spanish) --

Answering the census questions in Argentina is mandatory: if you don't, or if you lie in your answers, you can receive a fine.

However, that doesn't necessarily mean you can't leave the house at any time of the day.

Here we explain how it works.

This Wednesday, May 18, will be Census Day in Argentina, in which the State will collect updated information on more than 45 million inhabitants and more than 15 million homes.

On this occasion, and for the first time, the census works in the country with a mixed modality: you can complete it online and on Census Day simply deliver the proof of the procedure you did to the census taker who comes to your home or answer the questions at the time what's up

All the country's inhabitants are obliged to answer the census questions and "those who do not provide the requested information on time, falsify or omit the requested information will incur an infraction and will be subject to a fine," indicates a decree that regulates the operation of the census, originally planned for 2020 but that will finally take place in 2022.

Do I have to stay home?

Census Day is a national holiday precisely so that people can stay in the places where they usually live and welcome the census takers who will make their journey starting at 8:00 am local time.


That day, in addition, until 8 pm local time, no shows or public gatherings can be held either outdoors or indoors.

This includes, among other events, sports competitions, movie showings in theaters, and theater performances.

Also, all food and beverage businesses have to be closed until that time.

The Government recommends that if you are going to leave your home for any reason, you make sure someone is there to answer questions.

If you completed the digital census, you can leave that person with the proof of completion of the process so that they can give it to the census takers.

If you are traveling that day, for example, they suggest that you answer the digital census and leave the receipt with a neighbor who can deliver it for you.

Remember that the digital census is enabled from March 16 and you can complete it until May 18 at 8:00 am

If you did not complete the digital census and you directly wait for the census taker to arrive, you will not have any problem, since that is an option but it is not mandatory.
