5th IPUMS International Workshop



the first population census
The First Population Census

The first Population Census was done by the British, in 1955/1956 and completed in a time spam of one year and a half. It had made remarkable use of traditional administration (chiefs of the tribes). The total population was 10.1 millions and adjusted to 10.3 millions and was satisfactory to all types of people.

the second population census
The Second population census

The Second population census was done in 1973 and was delayed for five years because of the war in the south (The Addis Ababa peace Agreement was in 1972).The Total population in 1973 was 14.8 millions. The first result was only 12.3 millions which is very much less than expected. It was unfortunate that the enumeration failed at the beginning to cover the camps in some Gezira areas and to cover comprehensively the Nomads. Adjustment had been made after post-enumeration.

the third population census
The Third Population census

The third Population Census was conducted in 1983 . The total population was 20.6 millions which was also adjusted to 19.1 millions. A notice was raised about accuracy in the South due to weak logistics . Some enumerators who found it difficult to walk for long distances had used the chiefs of the tribes to fill the forms on behalf of the households.

fourth population census
Fourth population census

The fourth Population Census was done in 1993 and had come up with a total Population of 24.9 and adjusted to 25.9 million . This count did not include the rural areas in the South because of war and no comprehensive coverage of the nomads had taken place due to lack of logistics . In the 4th Population Census the proportion of the nomads was only 3% while it was 11% in the previous census. Over count was noticed in some areas by inhabitants in order to increase their sugar ration.


The 1956 Population Census was the most accurate census in Sudan compared with the others . Now this Population census has become the basis for all subsequent censuses.
