Computerisation of Census Data: Some Considerations

Abstract

Computerisation for the processing of Census data has been introduced in stages. It is still open for consideration whether one should or should not process the entire Census data through the computer because this has implications of cost, utilisation of equipment after the peak period of processing is over, whether the data themselves are capable of such sophisticated tabulation and the possibility of over-editing. The 1981 experience would be most useful in providing a feedback on these basic issues.
