image of Guidelines on the Use of Registers and Administrative Data for Population and Housing Censuses

The main purpose of this publication is to provide the producers of population and housing censuses with guidance on the use of registers and administrative data for censuses, including operational, practical, technical and legal aspects. Although various United Nations recommendations on population and housing censuses include a brief description of how registers and administrative data can be used for censuses, this is the first publication entirely dedicated to this subject. The publication was prepared by a task force composed of leading census experts from national statistical offices. The publication primarily targets national statistical offices and other agencies responsible for census taking, and is also expected to be valuable for users of census results.

Portugal case study

This annex summarises the work developed by Statistics Portugal (SP) between 2014 and 2016 to build a Statistical Population Dataset (SPD), which aims to replicate the country’s resident population and characterise it through a set of demographic and socio-economic variables. Administrative data sources are presented, as well as the methodological approach, the quality indicators to assess its fitness for purpose and comparability with the 2011 Census, the annual Population Estimates (PEs) for 2015 and the 2016 Census Test (CT).
