Foreigners, as well as Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan people, living or staying in the Chinese mainland will for the first time be tallied into its decennial census in 2010, the Beijing Daily reported Friday.

The door-to-door data-collection on its national population will employ six million enumerators. In Beijing, 100,000 will be summoned to the mission, which will for the first time be joined by volunteers fluent in foreign languages, mostly college students.

The population census, by far the largest in the world, will start on November 1, 2010. National agricultural, economic, and industrial censuses are also taken on a regular basis in the country. The first economic census was taken in 2004 and the second 2008.
