Advancing the Global Statistical System- Major work areas and accomplishments
24 February 2009

 Learning Centre:

A new interface for
dissemination of census information

23 February 2009, 10:00 - 11:45 am
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. 

Organizer: United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD)
