This publication reviews the practices followed by countries in the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) region during the 2000 round of population and housing censuses. It presents the different approaches and practices adopted by the countries and examines how these compare to the UNECE Census Recommendations developed for the 2000 census round.
The publication is divided into two parts: the first part deals with census methodology and technology, including operational and organisational aspects of census taking. The second part reviews the different topics investigated in the census, and the general degree of compliance of the practices followed by countries with the Recommendations for the 2000 Round of Censuses of Population and Housing in the UNECE region (“the Recommendations”).
