Abstract:
This paper focuses on the statistical aspects of a census. It addresses issues such as the coverage, classification, sampling, non-sampling error, post collection processing, weighting and disclosure avoidance. The intent of the paper is to demonstrate that most (if not all) of the statistical issues that are important in conducting a survey are equally germane to conducting a census.
