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 objective of the workshop is to introduce three of UNSD’s latest international guidelines on 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 with a view to facilitate planning and preparations for the 2020 round of population and housing censuses. 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 census operations management.
