A Handbook

image of Measuring the Economically Active in Population Censuses
The Handbook provides guidance on the measurement of economic characteristics in population censuses, based on relevant experiences of countries, with a particular focus on the questions used and the requirements for processing of responses. The Handbook is intended to provide census planners with a variety of approaches to assess the questions and methods of collecting economic characteristics used in their national census, as they evaluate the performance in the past decade and plan for the 2010 round of censuses (2005-2014). Users of census results may also find the present text useful when evaluating the quality of census results.

Labour force survey structure and arrangements

To appreciate the relationship between the population census and sample surveys of households on economic characteristics of the population, and how the census may be designed and used to aid the latter, it is useful to describe the main features of the structure and arrangements of labour force surveys. That is the objective of chapter XIII.
