Data processing is carried out in BPS West Java
The stages of data processing are important stages in determining what the prepared level of accuracy and accuracy of the data is. When it was still the Central Bureau of Statistics, data processing was carried out manually, using a calculator and abacus as a calculation tool.
Now the recording and processing of data has used the modern method, that is, using a computer. To be more precise, since the 1960s. A policy on the use of computers has been launched. However, at that time, data recording was still manual and then it was entered into the computer.
At the moment, all recordings are tried to be recorded directly using a computer device. Therefore, during the 2020 census, people were asked to fill out an online census both through the website and through the BPS West Java program. Did you also complete the 2020 census?
