2001 Canadian census experience: Shifting gears

Jan Beise
GENERAL CENSUS PLANNING AND MANAGEMENT

This paper by Statistics Canada describes how the agency is addressing both internal and external pressures to change its collection, processing and dissemination strategies. Using a number of pilot tests and phasing changes over the 2001 and 2006 Census cycles, the agency is moving away from a decentralized, manually intensive collection and data entry operation to a more centralized and automated approach. This will in particular address key concerns regarding confidentiality and security of personal census data.

Paper presented at the Joint ECE-EUROSTAT Work Session on Population and Housing Censuses (Ohrid, The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, 21-23 May 2003).
