dc.description.abstract During the last three decades, population and housing censuses have been the most critical source of data for policy decisions and for formulation, monitoring and evaluation of national and sectoral development programmes in Africa. This was achieved through active participation of many countries in the decennial census programmes, commonly known as census rounds. The 2000 census round can be described successful in most cases. However, a number of countries experienced implementation problems and challenges, including inadequate funding and weak technical expertise in national statistics offices. To ensure successful implementation of the 2010 census round, it will be necessary to develop strategies that would address the identified problems of 2000 round. For instance, African governments and the international community should commit adequate resources to statistical programs, including censuses and enhance capacities of the national statistics offices, especially through formal training of staff and provision of the equipment and materials. en_US
