The important role of research, evaluation and continuous improvement of census taking in Canada


This paper by Statistics Canada describes the role that research, evaluation and continuous improvement play in the Canadian Census, focusing on the efforts that led to innovative approaches implemented for the 2006 Census. The new approaches include a more centralized and automated process of enumeration and data processing. The paper notices the increased demands of the population concerning the issue of confidentiality protection and the existence of high expectations of users concerning timely and detailed public good data, both of which should be able to meet only by continuous improvemenent of the Census methodology.

Paper presented at the 2006 plenary session of the Conference of European Statisticians (CES) in Paris (13-15 June 2006).
