"[The] evolution over the last 50 years of data collection systems in less developed countries is assessed. The progress made by civil registration systems has been extremely disappointing. Except in Central and South America, their role in providing vital rate estimates is still very limited. In contrast, the promulgation of regular population censuses has been a success, particularly in Africa. The relative merits and demerits of different types of demographic surveys are described. To some extent multi-round designs have given way to single-round surveys, such as the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS). DHS-style enquiries are particularly suitable for evaluation of interventions but are less appropriate if the main aim is to measure vital rates."

Occasional Paper No. 3 of 1992. 1993. xiii, 62 pp. Office of the Registrar General: New Delhi, India. In Eng.
The authors evaluate the quality of mortality and fertility estimates obtained from the Indian Sample Registration System by using a number of indirect estimation techniques. Three fertility estimation techniques were used: the Palmore method, the Gunasekaran-Palmore method, and the Rele method. The four mortality estimation methods used were the Swanson-Palmore method, an extension of this method that allows for estimating life expectancy at birth for each sex separately, the Gunasekaran-Palmore-Gardner method, and a new method under development based on the Rele-Palmore methods. "The overall conclusion from our evaluation of the SRS is that both the fertility and mortality estimates are remarkably good."

This paper describes the sources of demographic data that are the necessary prerequisite for the study of populations. It discusses the main systems of continuing registration, including vital statistics, population registers, and population laboratories; censuses; surveys; and other ways of collecting demographic information such as remote detection, administrative records, and qualitative methods. Both the advantages and drawbacks of these various approaches to data collection are discussed.

"The utilization of data collected in censuses, large-scale surveys and population registers may be enhanced if new ways are discovered to interpret data and to combine data from different sources into a national integrated population information system. The paper proposes (i) to view observations (data) as manifestations of underlying random processes, and (ii) to focus on the modelling of the underlying process instead of on the description of the data."

"The main objective of this paper is to examine the quality of age and sex data for the three [Sierra Leone] population censuses of 1963, 1974, and 1985 for patterns and trend of improvement....The single-year age distribution for 1974 and 1985 censuses shows considerable heaping at ages ending in 0 and 5....Age heaping is characteristic of both males and females, but tends to be slightly more pronounced for females. However, the general pattern of digit preference and avoidance tends to be similar for both sexes."

"After providing context for decisions about census-taking strategy, we comment on the recent literature on census adjustment, including the papers by Freedman and Wachter and by Breiman contained in this issue; we also discuss the Census Bureau's plans for the year 2000. We conclude that the 1990 approach to summarizing the accuracy of an adjusted census can be improved upon, but that many of the criticisms of census adjustment do not reflect a balanced decision-making perspective. We also conclude that the Census Bureau is pursuing constructive research in evaluating a `one-number census', and we suggest that statisticians have a role to play in avoiding the costly legal battles that have plagued recent censuses by assisting in the process of deciding on a design for the 2000 census."

"From the time immediately after Turkish expansion (some sixty years after the Battle of Kosovo) three population census books relating to Serbian lands have been preserved. One of them is the defter (census) for Brankovica region dated 1455....The defter is a tax book in which all sources of income from households and [the] local economy are broken down by individual feudal estate (belonging to major and minor feudal landlords). In view of the specific nature of this document, this paper aims to analyze the exact nature of the term `house' as used in the original source that corresponds to the idea of domestic group or family."

"The question of whether to adjust the 1990 [U.S.] census using a capture-recapture model has been hotly argued in statistical journals and courtrooms. Most of the arguments to date concern methodological issues rather than data quality. Following the Post Enumeration Survey, which was designed to provide the basic data for adjustment, the Census Bureau carried out various evaluation studies to try to determine the accuracy of the adjusted counts as compared to the census counts. This resulted in the P-project reports, which totaled over a thousand pages of evaluation descriptions and tables. Careful scrutiny of these studies together with auxiliary sources of information provided by the Census Bureau is used to examine the issue of whether the data gathered in the Post Enumeration Survey can provide reliable undercount estimates." Comments and rejoinders on this and related papers are included (pp. 508-37).

"This book is intended to make more usable Henry J. Dubester's standard bibliography of historical U.S. census publications, Catalog of United States Census Publications, 1790-1945. Dubester's original work consists of a bibliography and subject index, to which this work adds a section of Supplemental Entries and three indexes. Each supplemental entry consists of an entry number corresponding to Dubester's original entry number, a Superintendent of Documents (SuDocs) classification number, by which most large libraries arrange their U.S. government publications, and the title of the work and notes as necessary. This section is followed by title, series, and SuDocs classification number indexes. The intent is to improve access to Census publications, which contain vast amounts of historical statistics, and to make it unnecessary for librarians and library users to search twice for these publications--once to identify them, and again in another source to find the SuDocs numbers."

"In 1992, a celebrated `statistical' trial took place in federal district court, as the City of New York and other plaintiffs sought to overturn a 1991 decision by the Secretary of Commerce not to correct the results of the 1990 census for what he acknowledged as an undercount of approximately five million people. This paper presents statistical background to the trial and some of the basic technical arguments presented by plaintiffs' expert witnesses."

"Current techniques for [U.S.] census adjustment involve the `synthetic assumption' that undercount rates are constant within `post-strata' across geographical areas. A poststratum is a subgroup of people with given demographic characteristics; poststrata are chosen to minimize heterogeneity in undercount rates. This paper will use 1990 census data to assess the synthetic assumption. We find that heterogeneity within poststrata is quite large, with a corresponding impact on local undercount rates estimated by the synthetic method. Thus, any comparison of error rates between the census and adjusted counts should take heterogeneity into account." Comments and rejoinders on this and related papers are included (pp. 508-37).

"The Secretary of Commerce, Robert Mosbacher, decided not to adjust the 1990 census. In my opinion, his decision was right, and well supported by the administrative record in the case....There is little evidence to show that adjustment improves on the accuracy of population shares. Instead, there is a substantial likelihood that adjustment will degrade the accuracy of the census. This article will summarize the argument."

"Considering the difficulties, the [U.S.] Census Bureau does a remarkably good job at counting people. There are two current techniques for evaluating or adjusting the census: (a) demographic analysis uses administrative records to make independent population estimates, which can be compared to census counts; (b) data from an independent sample survey can be used to estimate population coverage. If there is a large undercount, these techniques may be accurate enough for adjustment. With a small undercount, it is unlikely that current adjustment methodologies can improve on the census; instead, adjustment could easily degrade the accuracy of the data. This article reviews plans for Census 2000, including proposals for adjustment, in the light of past experience."

"This paper takes up two of the four main kinds of errors introduced by [census] adjustment. Correlation bias is the error that occurs because the post-enumeration survey (PES) tends to miss the same people as the census misses, leaving `unreached people' out of the adjusted figures. Failures of the synthetic assumption are errors that occur when people in the same population group living in different places have different true undercount rates, contrary to the homogeneity assumption built into the adjustment....These errors make it unlikely that the adjustment improves the population shares of states and local jurisdictions."
