Seminar on the in-depth analysis of Ethiopia's 2007 population and housing census

14-03-2011  – 18-03-2011 Addis Ababa

In many countries, the voluminous data collected through censuses is only partially analysed and disseminated, and often late, resulting in its underutilization. To address this challenge, UNSD in collaboration with the Italian Government has initiated a project to strengthen national capacity to analyse, present and disseminate census data in selected developing countries, Ethiopia being one. Based on a needs assessment mission launched by UNSD, the Central Statistical Authority (CSA) of Ethiopia has identified four areas for in-depth analysis: Fertility, mortality, housing, and the situation of the elderly. The national seminar is preparatory work for the preparation of monographs on the identified topics and in the process build capacity among CSA’s census analyses teams tasked with the preparation of analytical reports through on-the-job knowledge transfer. The final outputs are expected to be useful for effective development planning and monitoring population and socio-economic trends.
