The census is being conducted with a view to provide key economic performance indicators and a detailed profile of the economy. According to CSO acting director, John Kalumbi, the economic census is the total process of collecting, compiling and evaluating, analysing, interpreting and disseminating economic data pertaining to 2010 from business establishments in Zambia.

The economic census will be the principal source of information about business activities in the Zambian economy and will form the basis for all economic surveys in the country. Kalumbi explained that the listing phase of the economic census was conducted during 2007/8 while the 2011 economic census would focus on the enumeration of the listed business establishments.

The primary objective of the first phase of the economic census was to set up a comprehensive register of business establishments.
