Singapore's New Approach to Census Taking - Singapore

Population register as a source
Internationally and in Singapore, Censuses have been used as a source of benchmark data for all population and related social statistics. This is due to its universal coverage, wide scope of enquiry, and specific time reference. In the traditional approach, fieldworkers are engaged to enumerate the entire population physically present in the country during census day. Singapore adopted the register-based approach in its latest Census of Population 2000, and changed its concept of population coverage to a de jure count. With globalisation leading to the frequent travelling of Singaporeans and more foreigners staying long term in Singapore, the de jure concept would more accurately reflect Singapore's population size.
