2020 Round of Censuses - Francophone Africa
14-04-2020 – 17-04-2020 Brazzaville
The workshop will be conducted for French-speaking African countries to introduce two latest revisions of UNSD's international guidelines for population and housing censuses — the Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Censuses, Revision 3 and the Handbook on the Management of Population and Housing Censuses, Revision 2 – recently translated into French with the support of the United Nations Population Fund. The workshop will also introduce the Handbook on Population and Housing Census Editing Revision 2 and Guidelines on the Use of Electronic Data Collection Technologies in Population and Housing Censuses. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the international standards, concepts and methods used in conducting the census with a view to facilitating the planning and preparation of the 2020 round of population and housing census activities in the Francophone African countries. The workshop will also provide an opportunity to review national plans for the 2020 round of censuses in terms of methodology, use of technology and operations management and lessons learned from 2010 round censuses.
