Software has been launched by Registrar General & Census Commissioner,
India, and the country chiefs of UNFPA, UN Women and the representative
of UNICEF. The software has been developed by the United Nations
Statistics Division, in partnership with UNICEF and UNFPA.
Speaking on the occasion of the software launch in New Delhi, Dr. C.
Chandramouli, Registrar General & Census Commissioner, India informed
that the CensusInfo India Software is an innovative and flexible
database technology used for the dissemination of Population and Housing
Census results to help countries disseminate their census results at any
relevant geographical level, on CD-ROM and also on the web.
Highlighting the salient features of the Software, Registrar General &
Census Commissioner, India, stated that the software has a unique
feature which allows user to create tables, maps and charts using
her/his own data. The CensusInfo India on Houses, Household Amenities
and Assets based on Census 2011 data provides access to the dataset on a
number of indicators at State and District level.
The House listing and Housing Census has immense utility as it provides
comprehensive data on the conditions of human settlements, housing
deficit and consequently the housing requirement to be taken care of in
the formulation of housing policies. It also provides a wide range of
data on amenities and assets available to the households. Such an
information shall facilitate the departments of the Union and State
Governments and other non-Governmental agencies for development and
planning at the local level as well as the State level. The user
friendly CensusInfo Software would help all the stakeholders to make use
of 2011 Census data on House listing and Housing in a meaningful manner.
The Country Chiefs of UNFPA and UN Women and the representative of
UNICEF appreciated the Software and assured the office of the Registrar
General & Census Commissioner of their continued support.
