The census handbook of the United Nations for the World Programme on Population and Housing Censuses is in various parts, and is revised from time to time to reflect new developments and emerging issues in census-taking and national experiences in conducting the censuses each decade. This volume is concerned with the overall planning, organization, enumeration and post-enumeration work of the census, including administrative, management and logistical aspects of conducting a population and housing census. It is especially useful to officials in charge of large-scale data collection activities such as population, housing, agricultural censuses; household surveys and the like; and for students taking courses in demography and statistics.
