Workshop on Census Evaluation

Hanoi, Viet Nam
02 - 06 December, 2013

The regional workshop will bring together some fifteen national statisticians from eight Asian countries. The main purpose of the workshop is to provide the staff of national statistical offices with hands-on training to master indirect demographic techniques necessary for the evaluation of census results.

Participants will learn, in particular, the methods to evaluate age-sex structure of population, fertility as well as mortality data obtained from national population and housing censuses. They are also expected to establish own professional networks through exchange of experiences and knowledge on census data analyses.

UN DESA's Statistics Division is the primary agency responsible at the international level for (1) collecting official national demographic including statistics on population size and structure, fertility, mortality and international migration; (2) publishing internationally agreed standards and guidelines on collecting, compiling and disseminating demographic statistics and (3) providing technical assistance to national statistical offices on topics related to the improvement of demographic statistics.

The division also publishes the Demographic Yearbook which collects, compiles and disseminates official statistics on a wide range of topics. Data have been collected from national statistical authorities since 1948 through a set of questionnaires dispatched annually by UN DESA's Statistics Division to over 230 national statistical offices.
