Population and Housing Censuses

A Census gathers information on population and housing. In most Pacific countries and territories, a Census is carried out every 5 or 10 years. A Census is likely to be the most comprehensive survey a country carries out, as it covers each member of the population, rather than collecting data from a representative sample. Census data enable policy-makers to make informed and relevant decisions, based on current and projected trends.
