  • Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • 25 - 28 June 2018

The workshop is organized by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) in collaboration with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) country offices and the regional office for Asia and the Pacific


The main objective of the workshop is to introduce three recently revised/prepared international guidelines for population and housing censuses—the Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Censuses (Revision 3), the Handbook on the Management of Population and Housing Censuses (Revision 2) and the Guidelines on the Use of Electronic Data Collection Technologies in Population and Housing Censuses—and the standards, concepts and methods contained therein in order to facilitate national planning and preparations for 2020 round censuses. The workshop will also provide a forum for reviewing national experience in, and document good practices on, the use of contemporary technologies including those for census mapping and data collection.
