The Ministry of National Economy of Oman has conducted three censuses in 1993, 2003 and 2010.
The date of reference for census 2010 is December 12, 2010. Period of implemention: December 12 to 21, 2010. The Sultanate uses the de jure and the de facto approach in the enumeration.
For information on technical means used in Oman’s censuses, please see:
http://unstats.un.org/unsd/demographic/meetings/Conferences/Korea/2012/docs/s07-5-1-Oman.pdf

Some minor discrepancies in totals between tables may occur, due to recalculation of data presented as percentages in the source used.

2. Institution which provides data

National Center for Statistics and Information (NCSI)

3. Data availability

The National Center for Statistics and Information (NCSI) processes and disseminates all statistical data of use to the public and to government action.
1993′ and 2003’s census results are not available online. However, they are quoted in recent publications released by NCSI (Annual Statistical Yearbooks, survey results, studies).
2010’s census results are available on NCSI’s website, in several thematic publications, in the “publications” section
http://www.ncsi.gov.om/NCSI_website/N_publications_ar.aspx

The present results have been retrieved from “Oman’s Demographic and Social Atlas” published November 2013. The Atlas maps a selection of 2010′ census results by region (governorates, or mohafazat) and subregion (wilaya).
Data tabulated in the Atlas are presented as percentages. Data presented here were recalculated from these percentages.
