32 % of Lithuania population complete national census online

More than a million people, or 32 % of Lithuania's population, completed the 2011 Population and Housing Census online, it was reported on 21 March 2011.

During the period of the e-Census, 1-16 March 2011, 1 038 700 people used the eGovernment Gateway portal managed by the Information Society Development Committee (Informacinės visuomenės plėtros komitetas - IVPK, in Lithuanian) of the Ministry of Transport and Communications. Urban dwellers were most active in this respect: 45 % of the inhabitants in Vilnius, 43 % in Kaunas, 38 % in Šiauliai and 36 % in Panevėžys and Klaipėda.

In total there were more than 1.1 million logins to the portal during the e-census period, with the highest number of connections coming on the first and last days. On 1 March 2011, the first census day, a peak of 8 000 connections per hour was recorded, while on the last day connections peaked at 18 000 per hour. This high level of site traffic served to test the portal, but it was able to cope without major difficulties.

Users were able to use a number of different identification methods to complete the census online, including using electronic banking systems and their personal identification card with built-in digital certificate.
