Every year on March 9, we celebrate the Day of Polish Statistics, established by the Committee of Statistics and Econometrics of the Polish Academy of Sciences. This date commemorates the session of the Four-Year Sejm of 1789, during which it was decided to conduct the first general census on the territory of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
In the reborn Poland, censuses were conducted in 1921 and 1931. In the post-war period, censuses of population and housing were carried out in 1950, 1960, 1970, 1978, 1988, 2002, 2011 and 2021. In 1946, a summary census was conducted.
