A United Nations-backed census has recently launched aiming to provide better information on refugees and asylum-seekers in the Dominican Republic, many of whom are Haitian.

The census, which began last week, looks to give more accurate numbers on the population of refugees in the country, along with other data like age, nationality and gender.
