Evaluation of Accuracy of the 2000 Population Census of Japan

Jan Beise
EVALUATION OF CENSUS RESULTS
By Statistics Bureau of Japan, 2003

To evaluate the accuracy of the Population Census, the Statistics Bureau of Japan conducts a Post-Enumeration Survey and examines omissions and duplications. It is an attempt to measure indirectly the effectiveness of the various countermeasures adopted for the 2000 Population Census. This paper describes three methods used to evaluate the accuracy of the Population Census: (1) comparison of the Census results with the Basic Resident Registers; (2) age cohort analysis; and (3) analysis of the results of the Post Enumeration Survey.

Paper presented at the 21th Population Census Conference, Analysis of the 2000 Round of Censuses, Kyoto, Japan, 19 - 21 November 2003.
