Census Knowledge base

The Statistics for Development Division is setting up a knowledge base of documentation and presentations to assist countries embarking on censuses and surveys to plan and conduct the activity, and users of the resulting data to better understand how the data was collected. Starting with Population and Housing Censuses, each collection covered on the site will contain a timeline infographic listing the key stages to the collection. Each of these key stages will contain material such as:

  • project plans and budget templates,
  • training material to help conduct each of the activities where training of field staff is required (household listing, pilot census, main census)
  • tutorials to help with anything from updating map boundaries in a mapping application to conducting a census with tablets.
