Stealing the Bosnian Census, 2013-2016

16 Jan 2018


The 2013 Bosnian census figures report by the central government contain an over count of approximately 150,000, a number greater than the population of the third-largest city in the country, and probably due mainly to illegal registration on non-residents in strategically important parts of the country. While EUROSTAT has devised procedures to ensure a more accurate enumeration, the leaders of the three main ethno-national political communities had opposing interests in country nonresident, illegally, as residents. This analysis of the 2013 Bosnian consensus will show that like an election, a census can be stolen by manipulating how data can be counted, despite international efforts to present such a result.
