Report of the EGM on register-based censuses
  • Difficult-to-measure topics for register countries
  • Usual residence (also discussed in the Working Group on Demography and Census in Luxembourg in March 2008)
  • Cohabitation
  • Ethnicity / country or ethnic background
  • Activity status (also discussed in the Working Group on Demography and Census in Luxembourg in March 2008)
  • Unemployment according to the ILO definition
  • Country of birth according to new boundaries for immigrants of former Yugoslavia
place of birth as source of information
Place of birth as source of information
  • The problem:
  • Population Registers do not contain the country of birth by present borders
  • Solution in a traditional Census:
  • Ask further if the country of birth mentioned does no longer exist (neglect border changes?)
  • Solution in a register-based Census:
  • Make use of the place of birth to find the country of birth by present borders
former yugoslavia 1
Former Yugoslavia (1)
  • Now we distinguish seven parts:
  • Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia (excl. Kosovo), Kosovo, Montenegro and Macedonia
  • Recent webmagazine about some 8,500 Kosovars in the Netherlands
  • http://www.cbs.nl/en-GB/menu/themas/bevolking/publicaties/artikelen/archief/2008/2008-2411-wm.htm
  • About 75,500 people in the Netherlands are former Yugoslavs and their children
  • Two main groups:
  • Labour immigrants in the seventies and eighties
  • Refugees in the nineties

Former Yugoslavia (2)
  • We know from the Dutch Population Register:
  • Where they were born
  • Where their parents were born (ethnic background)
  • Classify them by present borders
  • Only for those born before the present countries emerged
  • Only for those from frequently occurring places of birth
  • Ask experts (e.g. people born in Yugoslavia)
  • Impute the remaining missing part

Former Yugoslavia (3)
  • Complications in the classification process:
  • Different ways of writing the same place of birth
  • Places of birth with the same name
  • How to impute properly?
  • Imputation options:
  • All records based on the population distribution over the parts of former Yugoslavia (simple but poor quality)
  • The remaining missing part based on the distribution of the classified places of birth in the same period of immigration (the chosen option)
other countries
Other countries
  • Estimating the numbers from other former countries by present borders:
  • Czechoslovakia
  • Soviet Union
  • Similar techniques applied for regional distributions in main countries of immigrants:
  • Morocco
  • Turkey
  • Surinam
  • Dutch Antilles and Aruba
