Compilation of environmentally-related questions in censuses/surveys and of specialized environmental surveys

With an ever increasing demand for high quality environment statistics especially bearing in mind the Sustainable Development Goal Agenda, the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) is now sharing publicly environment-related censuses and surveys. The Environment Statistics Section of UNSD has undertaken this initiative in collaboration with the Expert Group on Environment Statistics and has received contributions of censuses and surveys from experts in the field of environment statistics from various countries around the world.

The censuses and surveys are being made available for information and to help improve environment statistics collections, and analysis of environment statistics. Censuses and surveys available cover a variety of themes all relevant to environment statistics including agriculture, air and climate, energy, environment expenditure, fisheries, waste and water.

UNSD is grateful for contributions received and it is intended that this repository will grow over time. Censuses and surveys are made available for information only and are not intended to be used as a data collection tool.

UNSD welcomes further submissions of censuses and surveys from all countries in all official UN languages and other languages. Environmentally-related censuses and surveys, and specialized environmental surveys can be shared with the Environment Statistics Section of UNSD (contact: envstats@un.org) where they may then be made available at this webpage. It is viewed that this webpage will be updated with additional censuses and surveys periodically.

Censuses and surveys are provided in one list alphabetically by country name. The naming convention for each PDF document is:

[country], [census or survey title], [year census or survey was administered], [language if other than English]

In the interest of providing context for each census or survey being made available, where possible, a link to the source is provided.
