Workshop on the 2010 World programme on population and housing censuses: census editing, for countries in the Caribbean Region

06-12-2010  – 11-12-2010 St. John's

UNSD, in collaboration with the CARICOM Secretariat, is organizing a Regional Workshop for countries in the region on census editing in the context of the 2010 World Programme for Population and Housing Censuses. The purpose of the workshop is to develop capacities of CARICOM national statistical offices (NSOs) with the techniques and procedures used in editing population and housing census data. The Workshop will cover elements of edit specifications and implementing the specifications in CSPro. The Workshop will also offer the possibility to the participants to present and discuss the experience of their countries on different aspects of census editing. The workshop will be very hands-on, using the common core census questionnaire shared by many CARICOM member countries and sample data from some countries. Participants will be trained well enough to implement standard census edits at the workshop and be able to customize them after they return home.
