The Regional Training Workshop on Transition to Register-based Approaches for Population and Housing Censuses took place from 12 to 15 June 2023 in Ankara, Türkiye,

Over 30 participants from 12 countries attended the workshop. The objective of the workshop was to strengthen participants’ capacity on how to better use administrative data to support the census. Participants learned about the concept and features of register-based approaches for censuses and discussed the requirements, challenges, opportunities, and processes involved. The workshop also provided the opportunity to share knowledge and experience, as well as to learn from success stories. The participants also had a half-day study tour to the Turkish Statistical Institute (TURKSTAT), which is one of the pioneers in conducting register-based censuses in the Asia and Pacific region.  

The Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) organized this workshop in partnership with the Economic Commission for Europe (ECE), Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO), Statistical Institute for Asia and the Pacific (SIAP), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), and United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD). The workshop was hosted by the Statistical, Economic and Social Research and Training Centre for Islamic Countries (SESRIC) and supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Initiative.
