BAGHDAD — Baghdad’s Department of Christian Affairs at the Endowment Office of Christians, Yezidis, and Sabean-Mandaeans has taken a significant step towards developing a comprehensive database for Christians in Iraq. To this end, they have launched an electronic statistical form which Christians can fill out at their discretion.
This database is a crucial step towards facilitating the feasibility study of investment and service projects while simultaneously supporting the development of religious and service institutions for Christians. Furthermore, it will serve as a starting point for assessing the importance of future works and projects.
To ensure the success of this initiative, the Department of Christian Affairs has urged the heads of Christian religious denominations in Iraq to encourage their parishioners to fill in the form.
It is worth noting that the results of the form are not considered an official census, as it is optional and not subjected to the criteria of a comprehensive population census.
Additionally, the data of the form is limited to the ethnic components of those who filled it out, enabling the construction of an initial database that can be used to facilitate family affairs.
The form can be found on the Department of Christian Affairs website.
