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.
