Ancient population and housing census is a unique opportunity for making statistics visible, both in
terms of operations and results. For many people the census may be the only time that the State
reaches them and asks them a question. In addition, successfully conducting a census becomes a matter
of national pride for many countries. Ensuring confidentiality is crucial for the census to succeed. Thus, it
has to be made clear that the only reason for collecting individual data is for the production of statistics,
and that there will be no dissemination of individual information or any non-statistical linkage with
existing records in other government databases and data collections. Indeed, principle 6 of the
Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics states: “Individual data collected by statistical agencies for
statistical compilation, whether they refer to natural or legal persons, are to be strictly confidential and
used exclusively for statistical purposes.
