New Technologies in E-Census Data Collection Part 3: Timeline Impacts

New Technologies in E-Census Data Collection Part 3: Timeline Impacts

Introduction

Building a census timeline is a foundational activity for census planning and management. This brief is part three of a series of technical notes, New Technologies in Census Data Collection. The two previously published STICs in this series contain more information on the logistical and methodological implications of the transition to electronic collection technologies. This STIC will assist National Statistical Offices (NSOs) in planning an e-census timeline by comparing the scheduling requirements for a traditional paper and pencil (PAPI) census with electronic collection using computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI) on mobile devices or computer-assisted self-interview (CASI) on the Internet. An integrated system that combines case allocation and operational control with data transmission and storage is assumed to underpin an e-census.
