Learning Centre:
Dissemination of Census Results with CensusInfo

22 February 2010, 9:30 - 11:30 am
Conference Room 5 (TNLB)
United Nations, New York

The United Nations Statistics Division, in partnership with UNICEF and UNFPA, has developed a free software package, CensusInfo to help countries disseminate census data on CD-ROM and on the web. CensusInfo was officially launched at the 40th Statistical Commission in February 2009. UNSD provides CensusInfo software with a proposed list of census indicators and metadata in order to assist countries in setting up their own indicators and metadata according to national priorities and needs. UNSD has been conducting regional workshops as well as in-house training on the implementation of CensusInfo.

The primary objective of the session is to present experiences of countries using CensusInfo to disseminate the results of their population and housing census and to provide a discussion forum on its facilities to improve quality of dissemination of census results.

Organizers: United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD)
