image of Handbook on Census Management for Population and Housing Censuses

This Handbook reflects current practices in census management and provides concrete examples of census processes used in developed and developing countries. It presents an extensive coverage of techniques that can be used for quality assurance in every phase of the census cycle. The publication provides guidance on how to develop a structure able to effectively manage the census planning and operational processes; to plan all the processes that need to be considered in establishing a census; and to design control and monitoring processes. It is an ideal reference document on management aspects of conducting a population and housing census for national statistical offices, census and survey statisticians, social scientists and demographers, and international organizations involved in population activities.



Housing edits

the specifications for housing edits take into account the validity of individual items as well as consistency between items. Knowledge of specific relationships among items for a given country makes it possible to plan consistency edits to assure higher quality data for the tabulation. For example, a housing unit should not have a cement roof when the walls are constructed of bamboo. Similarly, units should have piped water inside the house in order to have a flush toilet or a bathtub or shower inside the structure.
