This publication is part two of the census handbook prepared by the United Nations for the World Programme on Population Censuses. The handbook is revised from time to time to reflect new developments and emerging issues in census-taking as well as national experiences in conducting the censuses each decade. This volume deals with the following census topics on demographic and social characteristics: age and sex, marital status, fertility, mortality, citizenship, language, national and/or ethnic characteristics, religion and disability. The Handbook will be useful to, among others, officials in charge of various census activities and students taking courses in demography and statistics.
