The National Census of Population and Housing 2011

 

NSP

 

The National Census of Population and Housing was carried out in the period from April 1st to June 30th 2011. The census concerned the state as at March 31st 2011 and covered the persons living permanently (registered for permanent residency) in Poland (regardless of whether these persons were staying in the country during the census or were abroad), as well as persons staying temporarily in Poland.

The 2011 Census was executed with the use of a mixed method, including the use of administrative data sources (registers and information systems), the acquisition of data directly from the population as part of initiated questionnaire surveys, namely through a sample survey- carried out based on a form with a broad range of topics and questions (a so-called long form) and through a so-called full-scale survey- carried out based on a short form, designed for all people not selected for the sample survey.

The solutions and procedures for combining data from both surveys and administrative sources used made ​​it possible to obtain one set of consistent results.

The 2011 Census was a survey carried out solely with the use of electronic forms. Apart from the interviews carried out by census enumerators with the use of hand-held devices (the CAPI method), two new data-collection methods were applied in the census, i.e. telephone interviews (the CATI method) and Internet self-enumeration (CAII).

The sample survey provided data for which the data included in registers and information systems was insufficient. The unprecedented size of the random dwelling sample - 20%, selected from over 70 thous. strata comprising all gminas in the country - ensured representative results from the powiat level upwards. The data obtained in the sample survey is the most important/ basic part of the information gathered in NSP 2011.
