The most difficult and extensive task a national statistical office performs is a population census, which involves mapping a nation's population, enlisting and training a sizable number of enumerators, running a wide-ranging publicity campaign, encouraging every household to participate, gathering personal data, compiling a sizable amount of completed questionnaires, and analyzing and disseminating the results. According to the report, the traditional tablet-based census method utilized by the Namibia Statistic Agency has a number of drawbacks, including data loss and a protracted procedure. The goal of the study was to create a web-based application to support the Namibia Statistic Agency's (NSA) present system. The study employed a qualitative research methodology, and participants' issues and points of view were elicited using a descriptive research design. The research's findings showed that the web-based application for the census will cut down on the amount of time needed for data entry collecting and that the budget for the census will fall since the web-based system will cost less overall. The report concludes by recommending the NSA to consider employing the web-based application for its subsequent population count in order to do away with and simplify the manual data collection process.
