This paper describes a census data dissemination project implemented in Slovakia. The purpose of the project was to enhance the knowledge of domestic and foreign general audience and professionals about modern population and housing censuses realised in Slovakia by means of the Internet.

The objectives of the project are:
a) to present detailed results and other related basic information (legislation, census scope, historical context, questionnaires, processing technologies, maps...) concerning population and housing censuses conducted in the area of Slovakia in 1921, 1930, 1950, 1961, 1970, 1980, 1991 and 2001;
b) to increase the accessibility and comprehensibility of data by presenting data and other relevant documents in one place and in a unified form;
c) to increase the attractiveness of census results by presenting them in various forms like tables, diagrams, and maps;
d) to provide the possibility to compare selected indicators in their historical context (the website contains time series, some of which start as early as in 1848);
e) to create an open scalable application allowing its trouble-free expansion in the future;
f) to make the results available to the international community (creating the English mutation of the presentation).

Paper presented at the "Meeting on the Management of Statistical Information System" jointly organised by UNECE and EUROSTAT, Geneva, 8-10 May 2007).
