Pop­u­la­tion and hous­ing cen­suses in Ja­maica

Jamaica Gleaner - - CELEBRATING 70 YEARS OF PROVIDING STATISTICS -

MOST COUN­TRIES of the world con­duct a cen­sus, pe­ri­od­i­cally, and a very im­por­tant role of a cen­sus is to pro­vide ba­sic sta­tis­tics on small ar­eas and small pop­u­la­tion groups with lit­tle or no sam­pling er­rors. Since the end of the 19th Cen­tury, the In­ter­na­tional Sta­tis­ti­cal Congress has been pro­mot­ing in­ter­na­tional cen­suses, rec­om­mend­ing that all coun­tries in the world con­duct them.
