Interesting indeed but a comparaison between the figures of the 2005 and 2011 voters census would probably be even more interesting...

2006 voters registration Figures were as followed :

Bandundu 2, 925,126
Bas-Congo 1, 227,775
Equateur 2, 923,680
Kasai Occidental 2, 010,405
Kasai Oriental 1, 975,430
Katanga 3, 473,936
Kinshasa 2, 913,313
Maniema 626,327
Nord-Kivu 2, 451,475
Orientale 3, 241,470
Sud-Kivu 1, 651,262
Total 25, 420,199

It can be seen from these figures that there has been a 26% increase when comparing between 2006 and 2011. In other words, there has been around 26% increase in population of voting age between 2006 and 2011. This corroborates significantly with existing DRC population projections for 2011.

So when does the public publishing and auditing begin?
