brief history of population census
BRIEFHISTORY OF POPULATION CENSUS
  • Population censuses have a relatively short history
  • The interest in population size has been present as long as socially organized human communities
  • Population counts throughout history, usually associated with the demand for taxes or the need to estimate potential military strength.
  • It is only in the past 200 years or so that periodic censuses were taken and the results factually recorded.
slide3
Cont`
  • The first census in the 20th century was conducted in 1918. Further censuses being conducted in 1935, 1944, 1956, 1963, 1969, 1979, 1989 and 2000.
  • The latest 4 censuses were organized along with the housing census.
  • Since Mongolia became a member of COMECON in 1962, the censuses in 1969, 1979, and 1989 followed the common principles of population census in COMECON countries.
slide4
Cont`
  • The 2000 census was the first census that was organized in transition economy. In addition, 2000 census followed UN principles and guidelines in organizing population census.
  • In 2000, the main legislative environment for the census was a provision of the Statistical Law to carry out Population census every 10 years.
data processing
DATA PROCESSING
  • We have developed our application which was used for data entry in-house.
  • Coding – manually. But computer assisted coding was used for purpose of testing in some part of questionnaire
  • Editing – both manually and automatically
  • Entry or typing – manually
the processing system
The processing system
  • National Statistical Office (NSO) was not in a position to begin the basic design of the processing system in later of 1997.
  • However, with the assistance of UNFPA and UNSD, from the first quarter of 1998 NSO was provided with new equipment, components and software.
  • It was thus able to establish the basis for strengthening the technical capacity required for the 2000 census.
  • The NSO purchased a range of equipment including 38 Compaq computers, two ACER server computers and other equipment.
slide7
Cont`
  • On the software side, the NSO decided to process the census using IMPS (Integrated Microcomputer Processing System)
  • Four programmers of the NSO participated training in Japan, Kazakhstan and at the Bureau’s headquarters in Washington D.C.
  • Apart from the use of IMPS, the NSO developed other census applications, for example, using the CLIPPER and VISUAL BASIC languages.
slide8
Cont`
  • Data entry was designed for LAN using a Windows NT Server V4.0 as the control center.
  • The center-server computer was a Pentium II, 366 Mhz, 128 MB, and 9 GB SCSI HDD and the operators’ computers were Pentium 133-166 Mhz CPU, 16MB RAM, 1.2-2.1 GB HDD.
  • A new server was purchased fromDell and installed at the beginning of September 2000, thanks to the generous support of the Australian Government
coding and data entry
Coding and data entry
  • Most of the coding was done manually and were used CSPro 3.3
  • But some variables for example, classification of occupation and class. of all industrial activity was coded with assistance of computer.
  • A special application to speed coding named SEARCH was also developed.
slide10
Cont`
  • Automatically coding was very time saving and coding had finished within 44 days.
  • For data entry, computer editing and tabulation, modules of the IMPS package were used
slide11
Cont`
  • Apart from the use of IMPS, the NSO developed other census applications, for example, using the CLIPPER and VISUAL BASIC languages.
  • Thirty-six computers (workstations) were available for data entry
  • Two servers were operating and connected to the network.
editing
Editing
  • Editing was completed in two stages.
  • In the first stage records were edited manually
  • In the second they were automatically edited by using the editing module of the IMPS package, Concor
issues raised
Issues raised
  • Many issues were raised during the 2000 census. Attempts to tackle the problems encountered have certainly resulted in a more streamline data processing service within the NSO.
  • The question of geographic distribution of processing also needs pursuing.
  • Given the advances in automatic data transmission that can be expected
data processing 2010 census
Data processing 2010 census
  • NSC is aiming to utilize modern technology for data processing
  • NSC is establishing GIS to utilize in enumeration and intends to use for data analyzing and dissemination
  • GPS will be used for taking household waypoint also
  • Data processing will be done in local networking environment
  • NSC is planning to utilize CSPro for data entry
  • OCR/ICR will be utilized for small percent data capturing of the questionnaire
  • And detailed plan for data processing is under discussion
