Chile's Census Commission (Comisión Nacional Censal) has announced that contrary to what was done on previous occasions, the upcoming 2012 census would not be accompanied by a one-off non-working public holiday in Chile.

As per the statement of the President of the Chilean National Census Commission, Pablo Longueira, next year's census will not be limited to a single day and as such no one-off non-working public holiday will be declared in Chile on that occasion ("el próximo año no se realizará en un día decretado como feriado").

Recall that, just before the last census (2002-02-01), Chile's Parliament passed law 19.790, "Declara Feriado Legal y Regula los Dias de Realizacion de Censos Oficiales", which makes any census day an official non-working public holiday in Chile.
