In this document from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), a set of recommendations is provided for those countries that were preparing for their population censuses at the time of the health emergency generated by COVID-19.
It is stated that UNFPA does not recommend changing the modality for any census that is already in an advanced stage of preparation. In such cases, it is prudent to postpone the planned census approach.
On the other hand, some operational options are given for conducting censuses that countries can evaluate, such as the use of mixed methods; online censuses; the use of administrative records; and model-based population estimates.
