The United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) in collaboration with Korea National Statistical Office (KNSO) is organizing the Second International Workshop on Economic Census. The workshop is dedicated to the topics of great relevance for the establishment and maintenance of a sound foundation for the compilation of economic statistics in countries at different levels of economic development.

The workshop is aiming to provide a discussion forum for country representatives and international experts to share and document their experiences in economic census and its role in addressing the challenges faced by the National Statistical Offices in measuring the constantly changing economies. The workshop will review all aspects of the conduct of an economic census – from its planning, through data collection and processing, to the dissemination and analysis of census results.
