Arab Register of Censuses and Surveys
The Statistics Division at ESCWA has the pleasure to present the e-publication on "Arab Register of Censuses and Surveys".
The Statistics Division is one of the main substantive programmes of the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) which was established on 9 August 1973. ESCWA aims at supporting economic and social development in the region. Distinguished by the power to convene, the Commission provides a regional forum for coordination and forging of common positions among its member countries.
ESCWA, as part of its mission to facilitate regional cooperation and integration, has prepared this e-publication to provide up-to-date register of censuses and surveys implemented in all the Arab countries. The e-publication consolidates information and provide an insight on types and periodicity of surveys and censuses conducted in the region.
The e-publication will be maintained and further developed and updated on a yearly basis upon receipt of new information, comments and feedback from the Arab countries.
