Global Census Archive

More Than Numbers

Census data provides unparalleled insight into the lives of individuals. In the first offering of its kind, East View Geospatial presents the Global Census Archive, 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 Archive simplifies access to this complicated material, formatting each census collection into an easy-to-use geodatabase and providing comprehensive user guides.
