The new approaches include a more centralized and automated process of enumeration and data processing. The paper notices the increased demands of the population concerning the issue of confidentiality protection and the existence of high expectations of users concerning timely and detailed public good data, both of which should be able to meet only by continuous improvemenent of the Census methodology.
