Jan Beise
7. Economic characteristics
By United Nations Statistics Division, 2009.

The United Nations, as part of its world programme on population and housing censuses,has provided technical guidelines to its Member States primarily through the preparation of Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Censuses; handbooks on general census operations and on the collection of data on specific topics; and supporting technical materials.

The present volume, Handbook on Measuring the Economically Active Population and Related Characteristics in Population Censuses, provides suggestions on the implementation of guidelines on the measurement of economic characteristics in population censuses, based on relevant experiences of countries, with a particular focus on the questions used and the requirements for processing of responses. A separate part of the Handbook considers the role that the census results on economic characteristics can play in the planning of statistical surveys. The Handbook is intended to provide census planners with a variety of approaches to assess the questions and methods of collecting economic characteristics used in their national census, as they evaluate the performance in the past decade and plan for the current decade round of censuses (2005–2014). Users of census results may also find the present text useful when evaluating the quality of census results.
