Technical reports

The technical reports review the instruments used by the Demographic Yearbook to collect data from national statistical offices in terms of how well they adhere to relevant international guidelines in terms of concepts, definitions and classifications used.

The technical reports also review the experience of countries with regard to reporting of the requested data to the Demographic Yearbook for the period 1961 to 2000, and relate national practices with respect to classifications to relevant international recommendations for the topics being reported. The main international recommendations that are the focus of the assessment are, as appropriate, the Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Censuses, Revision 1, the Principles and Recommendations for a Vital Statistics System, Revision 2, and Recommendations on Statistics of International Migration, Revision 1.

The technical reports prepared thus far are:
