Statistiques de l’alimentation et de l’agriculture

Regional workshop for the Caribbean on linking population and housing censuses with agricultural censuses


10-12 June 2013, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago

The workshop will provide practical guidance on best practices for carrying out coordinated and integrated censuses, including collection of agricultural census items in the population census for countries in the Caribbean. Integrated censuses have many advantages including a wider range of analysis for policy-making, cost effective censuses and improved bases for other statistical data collections.

The practice of coordinating population and housing with agricultural censuses has been recommended by the FAO World Programme for the Census of Agriculture 2010 (WCA 2010) and by the UNFPA in line with the Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Censuses for the 2010 round. The approach is also in line with the Global Strategy to Improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics which recommends the integration of agriculture into the national statistical system.
