A new interface for
dissemination of census information

Conference Room 5
United Nations, New York
The United Nations Statistics Division, in partnership with UNICEF and UNFPA, has developed a software package, CensusInfo to help countries disseminate census data on CD-ROM and on the web. Based on the DevInfo platform, specific functionalities have been added to meet the census dissemination requirements: enhanced performance, template reports for dissemination at any geographical level, and mapping facilities. Although a standard list of indicators will be proposed with the software, countries will be able to customize the list of statistics/indicators to suite national data needs. The project started early in 2008 and CensusInfo will be officially launched at the 40th Statistical Commission in February 2009 and widely disseminated.
