CensusInfo: Country Experience

29 February 2012
8:30 - 9:30 a
Venue: Conf. Room 7 (TNLB)
United Nations, New York

CensusInfo—a free and interactive software application co-developed by UNSD, UNFPA and UNICEF—is designed to enable countries to disseminate census data on the web or on CD-ROM, allowing a fast and user-defined production of tables, graphs, maps and reports at any geographical level. CensusInfo comes with a standard—but customizable—set of census indicators with accompanying metadata based on the recommended topics of the Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Censuses, Revision 2. The side-event will provide an opportunity for sharing national practice and experience in the adaptation of CensusInfo as a platform for the dissemination of census results.
