Population housing census and hybrid method support
Today, with major demographic shifts occurring and attention focused on international development, accurate and timely data are more important than ever. A census can represent the entire statistical universe of a country or region, down to the smallest geographical unit if conditions allow for it. In territories where a traditional census cannot be conducted countrywide due to inaccessible hard-to-reach areas, disasters or lack of infrastructure, the revolutionary hybrid method helps to generate quality population estimates everywhere.
Population and housing censuses are the most important resource to produce accurate population data at the national and sub-national level. In cases where inaccessibility or insecurity don’t allow for census data, high-resolution population estimates are fundamental to understand and drive development.
Capacity strengthening is a strategic priority to ensure sustainable, ground level impact. Open data and knowledge transfers are key for data-driven decision-making to be integrated into sustainable development.
