goal 1 revision of the principles and recommendations for p h censuses
Goal 1: Revision of the Principles and Recommendations for P&H censuses
  • Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Censuses, Rev. 2 adopted by the UN Statistical Commission in March 2007 and available on UNSD website
  • Revision refers to:
    • Emphasis on production of outputs for evidence-based decision making (output orientation)
    • Introducing recommended tabulations
    • Acknowledging alternative approachs
    • Updating definitions, concepts and classifications
    • Introducing new core topics
goal 2 facilitate countries in conducting censuses during the 2010 round
Goal 2: Facilitate countries in conducting censuses during the 2010 round
  • 49 countries will have undertaken a census by the end of 2007
  • 41 countries have not yet planned a census
  • Major problems or needs for assistance:
    • Funding
    • Preparation and planning
    • Cartography
    • Management and quality assurance
    • Data capture, especially scanning
    • Data processing
    • Dissemination and analysis
    • Evaluation, Post enumeration surveys
    • Others, including political problems

2010 World Census Programme Resource Center
  • Rationale:
    • Census takers are very busy and don’t have time to look at colleagues’ websites or don’t know where to look
    • NSOs websites are often public-oriented and offer little technical documentation
    • Census takers need to keep abreast of the methodological and practical improvements

  • Success factors:
    • Build a network to work in collaboration with all the partners (International and Regional Organizations and NSOs)
      • Create a mailing list of participants
    • Pro-active participation of census managers to provide information and documentation
