Undertaking Population and Housing Census Register-based and combined methodologies
The present report outlines the potential use of administrative registers in population and housing censuses. It focuses on the case study of Poland, which conducted a population census in 2011 using combined administrative registers. The report discusses some preconditions for the transition from traditional census methodologies to combined census methodologies. It also considers the experience of some Arab countries in terms of the potential use of registers for the 2020 census round.
