National SDG indicators and Georgian population census 2024

Publication

Since its independence, Georgia has conducted two population censuses. The first census was conducted in 2002. The second and most recent General Population Census of Georgia was conducted during November 5 19, 2014. Taking into consideration that agricultural activity and production is primarily carried out by households in Georgia, based on the UN recommendations developed for the 2010 round of censuses, the Agricultural Census was combined with the General Population Census. It allowed an optimal use of financial and human resources. The Census covered 82% of the entire country, excluding the occupied territories: Abkhazia, Georgia and Tskhinvali Region/South Ossetia. According to the Law on Official Statistics, the census could be conducted no more than once every 10 years.

In countries with strong anti-LGBT sentiments, members of the group are victims of violence and discrimination in various fields of life.

Loneliness and social isolation among older people in the eastern Europe and central Asia region

Publication

This report is the result of a multinational survey on loneliness among older people that was carried out—under sometimes challenging conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic—in six countries/territories in Eastern Europe and the South Caucasus during the summer of 2021. The survey was implemented under the technical leadership of Professor Tara Keck of University College London and the organizational leadership of Zeljko Blagojevic of UNFPA Bosnia and Herzegovina. The UNFPA country offices in the respective countries and territories were intensively involved in organizing fieldwork and providing comments, while the UNFPA Regional Office for Eastern Europe and Central Asia coordinated the process and produced this report. We would like to express our appreciation to all those who contributed to the success of this exercise, including the respondents to the survey and the participants in the focus group meetings.
