The present report examines the most important international experiences adopted by developed countries in the world with regard to the dissemination of population and housing censuses, to be used and adopted as lessons learned, and to help identify products that can be provided to users in the 2020 Census. The report stresses the need for countries to develop strategies for the dissemination of census products before the completion of data collection, and stresses the importance of consulting with users to provide products that meet their expectations, the expectations of decision makers, researchers, university professors, civil society organizations and others. It concludes with a series of recommendations that would make a significant leap forward in the dissemination of census products.
