[from the U.S. Census Bureau, December 9, 2022]
The U.S. Census Bureau is pleased to announce the release of additional technical notes in the series entitled Select Topics in International Censuses. Each one highlights a new subject or method relevant to census planners in middle-to low-income countries. They complement the U.N. Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Censuses [archived PDF] by describing select topics in more detail.
The new notes [archived PDFs] focus on:
- Assessing the Quality of Administrative Data in a Census
- Measuring Participation in Own-Use Production of Goods in a Census
- Measuring Educational Characteristics in a Census
Sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and prepared by U.S. Census Bureau experts, the Select Topics in International Censuses series is designed to assist staff in NSOs to address some of their most pressing census issues.
Technical notes on other topics are in development and will be released in the near future.
