Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Censuses, Rev. 2


By United Nations Statistics Division, 2008.

 

Since its earliest years, the United Nations has issued a series of international principles and recommendations on population and housing censuses to assist national statistical offices and census officials, throughout the world, in planning and carrying out improved and cost-effective censuses.

 

The Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Censuses, Revision 2  is divided into three parts: Part One - Operational aspects of population and housing censuses – covers mainly issues of census planning and management; Part Two – Topics for population and housing censuses – includes topics as well as their definitions and classification for both population and housing; and Part Three – Census products and data utilizations – is aimed at enhancing the dissemination and utilization of census data. The publication also contains a set of recommended tabulations on population and housing that every country is should produce at least once during the 2010 census round. There are also additional tabulations that countries may produce depending on their needs.
