The First Complete Enumeration of Papua New Guinea – The 1980 Population Census
Reg. J. Gilbert
Abstract:The 1980 Population Census of Papua New Guinea was the first complete enumeration of the population of the country. It was also the first census to be designed and processed within the country. This paper gives the background to the census and outlines the development and implementation of the project, concentrating on the problems encountered and the procedures developed to overcome them in this (in many ways) unique environment. The census project was a thorough exercise and recommendations are also given for the future.
Keywords:Census; population; group enumeration census; census editing and imputation; census dissemination.
