Technological advances in the use of population registers for the purposes of administration and service delivery has increased interest in establishing them or developing them further. At the same time, increased demand for timely and disaggregated data, such as for monitoring the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, amplifies interest in population registers as a source of statistical data, especially with regard to up to date and granular population estimates.
ESCAP recently published a Stats Brief on Population Registers: A Key Resource for Producing Vital Statistics, and on Tuesday, 27 October, from 12:30 - 13:30 (Bangkok time), the ESCAP Statistics Division will host a webinar on the importance of population registers and vital statistics.
This webinar is part of the ongoing Asia-Pacific Stats Café series. Interested participants can register here and join the webinar on Microsoft Teams.
