Geographical and Environmental Epidemiology

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews data sources for small-area population counts and estimation methods in years when counts are not available. In countries where local population registers are available these provide the best source, and it is recommended that they be used, particularly when a register makes different levels of aggregation easy to assess. When population registers are not available, census data provide the best and most reliable source. In years when there is no census, then the standard approaches are regression models and component projections.

Keywords:   population estimates, small-area studies, estimation methods, data sources, population register
