The Population Count Ordinance (AB 1990, GT 10) indicates that every inhabitant of Aruba is obliged to cooperate with the Census. On the other hand, this Ordinance also protects every inhabitant from misuse of their individual information gathered during the Census. In this manner, individuals who because of their position, work or profession are obliged to maintain secrecy, can refrain from providing the information requested, but only when this information was provided to them while in function. Furthermore, this article stipulates that those who do not provide the necessary information, taking into account the valid reasons mentioned above, can be penalized with a prison sentence with a duration of two weeks or a fine of up to 500 Aruban florins.
