In its Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Censuses (2008), the United Nations (UN) defines a population census as “the total process of collecting, compiling, evaluating, analysing and publishing or otherwise disseminating demographic, economic and social data pertaining, at a specific time, to all persons in a country or in a well-delimited part of a country.” (UN, 2008, p. 7)

The emphasis on this course guide is Geospatial Data from the Singapore Census 2010. The primary links are to the Statistical Release 3: Geographic Distribution and Transport. Geospatial data, available from the Population Trends report, as well as the Census of Population reports published by the Singapore Department of Statistics.
