Laotian population counted

The Swedish documentation software system supplier Readsoft has been awarded a contract by the Laotian statistical agency National Statistics Centre, NSC.      Readsoft will supply a system that automatically scan and organize the more than 1.1 million census forms filled in by 16 000 NSC staff who visit all homes in Laos’ 11000 villages to gather data about the Lao population.
     The project is supervised by NSC in cooperation with Statistics Sweden, SCB, and Readsoft’s local partner Datamation.
     The actual software package, Readsoft Documents for forms, reads and understands handwritten writing, printed text, bar code and other symbols on documents.
