Global Census Data

More Than Numbers


Census data provides unparalleled insight into the lives of individuals. In 2019, East View launched its first set of GIS census products across Latin America. East View is now turning its attention to the creation of a global census collection. This collection will be an international census platform that contains current and past GIS census data, with all published volumes scanned and discoverable as well as the supporting questionnaires and other ephemera.

East View’s global census collection will be a robust resource for authoritative census data from around the world. When initially acquired, census data is stored in a complex database structure, limiting access to those with significant database management and programming experience. The global census collection simplifies access to this complicated material, formatting each census collection into an easy-to-use geodatabase and providing comprehensive metadata and user guides.
