This study is concerned with the evidence that there is significant underreporting of both births and infant deaths in China. "This is a study of two parallel but distinct data collection systems in Ciqixian, a mostly rural district of Zibo city in Shandong province: the family planning demographic and contraceptive surveillance system and the registers maintained by the health system. A comparison of the sets of birth records maintained by the two agencies can provide evidence of underreporting in family planning records.... The analysis of data alone says little about the ways in which individual and programmatic priorities combine to produce anomalies in the recording of demographic events. It does not tell us why underreporting occurs and what the consequences of this are." The author suggests that the omission of births and subsequent infant deaths, and of births unauthorized by the family planning program, may be due to efforts by both individuals and officials to meet program targets.

"Between 1995 and 1998 the local authority structure and geography of the United Kingdom was substantially revised. The two-tier system of local government was abolished in Wales, Scotland, and in parts of non-metropolitan England, and replaced with a single-tier system." This paper examines issues related to providing demographic and other data for the new administrative areas for the period prior to 1998. "First, it describes a look-up table detailing exactly how the 1998 local government geography related to 1991 Census areas, and second, it sets out methods for producing 1991 Census data and mid-1991 population estimates (including single year age detail) for the new geography. A selection of the results produced by the described methods is included in tables and population pyramids."

International Journal of Geographical Information Science, Vol. 12, No. 6, Sep 1998. 579-605 pp. London, England. In Eng.
"The paper describes a problem faced by National Statistical Offices when publishing the results of decennial censuses for small geographical areas. If they publish statistical tables for two or more sets of areas, users can compare the tables and produce new statistics for the areas formed by differencing, which may have populations below confidentiality thresholds. To investigate the problem, the authors construct a software system and carry out a series of experiments using a large synthetic population base for Yorkshire and Humberside [in England]. The results indicate that publishing statistics for zones close in size to the primary areas is not safe unless the zones have been carefully designed. However, publishing statistics for sufficiently large areas such as 5km grid squares or postal sectors alongside enumeration districts is safe."

"Different methods have been developed in evaluating the quality of census data and census undercount.... In order to compare the methods and identify their strengths and gaps, Demography Division of Statistics Canada has reviewed the procedures used in four industrialized countries: the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and, of course, Canada. It appears from this review that demographic analysis can help considerably in the identification of inconsistencies through comparisons of consecutive censuses, while micro-level record linkage and survey based procedures are essential in order to estimate the number of people omitted or counted twice in census collection."

"Statistics Canada has produced population and family estimates, fully adjusted for coverage error, from 1971 to the present. Several procedures, developed by both demographers and statisticians have historically played an important role in evaluating census coverage in Canada. Most methods can be grouped as involving either (i) demographic analysis (macro-level approaches), or (ii) case by case matching procedures and record linkage techniques (micro-level approaches). The present paper reviews selected procedures, and suggests possible avenues for future research. It is argued that there is substantial potential in increasing the emphasis placed on demographic analysis in the estimation of census coverage, particularly in improving estimates for specific age and sex groups."

"For some years it has been the policy of Statistics Norway to collaborate with various governmental agencies in order to use administrative registers in statistics production. This policy has been supported politically, and a new Statistics Act has been useful in these efforts. The purpose of this paper is to present the strategy and methodology used to produce statistics in general, census statistics in particular, when based on a combined use of administrative registers and directly collected data. Experiences from Norwegian censuses since 1960 will be presented."

"This paper deals with aspects of the application of the generalized data editing and imputation software named DIA to the 1991 Population Census [of Brazil] Basic Questionnaire. This software, developed by the Spanish National Statistical Institute, handles editing and imputation of categorical data in one processing cycle and provides comprehensive information to control and assess the automatic correction process. The analysis reveals the data quality and efficiency of the software adopted, which ensures data consistency while preserving basic distribution properties."

"Two trends have been on a collision course over the recent past. The first is the increasing demand by researchers for greater detail and flexibility in outputs from the decennial Census of Population. The second is the need felt by the Census Offices [in the United Kingdom] to demonstrate more clearly that Census data have been explicitly protected from the risk of disclosure of information about individuals. To reconcile these competing trends the authors propose a statistical measure of risk of disclosure implicit in the release of aggregate census data. The ideas of risk measurement are first developed for microdata where there is prior experience and then modified to measure risk in tables of counts...."

The question of whether the concept of caste should be included in the census of India is discussed. The author makes the case that "in a caste society recognition of caste alone can transform caste and [lead] to the emergence of a castelesss society. Denial of caste can only further brutalise our caste-ridden society and enhance the influence of the already privileged. Caste should be an essential element of the forthcoming census."

This is a listing of survey and census records available for Latin America and the Hispanic United States. It lists about 4,000 separate censuses by country, and then alphabetically by locality, province, year, and reference locator. The period covered is from the early Spanish conquest onward. "While the majority of census listings are for Mexico, all countries of Spanish North America, Central America, and South America are covered. The modern states of California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas are found here under Mexico because they belonged to Mexico during the period in which most of the censuses were taken. Florida and Louisiana, on the other hand, are separate because of their loose ties to Mexico."

"The author describes the results of a survey of user views about the next Census of Population in the United Kingdom, to be held in 2001. Some 140 respondents reported their views, which included strong support for a question on income, endorsement of the new one number census methodology and support for postcode-based outputs. The author sets these views in the context of the Census Development Programme being carried out by the U.K. Census Offices and the proposals for outputs which are being discussed with the main census user sectors of central and local government, business, the Health Service, and the academic community."

"The purpose of this study was to determine how well men recall reproductive information. By using a questionnaire, the authors surveyed men who had undergone orchiopexy for undescended testes and a group of matched control men, all of whom had had surgery at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (n=77), and their spouses. Subjects were a random subset of a larger (n=1,212) male fertility study, which has been ongoing since 1992. In 1994, the spouses of men who participated in the study completed a short telephone survey that contained questions previously asked of their partners.... Agreement between the men and their spouses on the majority of bivariate (yes/no) questions, such as those concerning the use of birth control...was moderate to very good.... In this sample from a large cohort study, men appear to recall reproductive information with acceptable accuracy."
