Changing The System From Traditional Census To Register Base Census In Turkey

3. Register-based census
By Turkish Statistical Institute, 2009.

All population censuses in Turkey so far were carried out with traditional method in one day by application of a curfew with “de facto” definition. Information on usual residence (de jure) population and household structure are not available from past censuses because of listing only present persons on the census day. However main problem in the census was over-counting of population (imaginary population) and out of date because of ten years interval. Therefore, Turkish Statistical Institute (TurkStat) aimed to change the method of population census in order to produce more reliable and up to date information on population size and characteristics. For this purpose, population registration system has been improved to cover usual residence address of all people living in the country. This system is considered as a base source for the next census.

Main purpose of this paper is to present the method of how to establish Address Based Population Registration and how to improve this system.

Paper presented at the 57th Session of the International Statistical Institute (ISI), Durban (South Africa), August 2009.
