In the first offering of its kind, East View presents the Global Census Archive® (GCA), an innovative program to collect officially published materials related to censuses from around the world.
Since launching the inaugural Latin America Census Collection in 2018, East View has been working to collect hundreds of censuses and thousands of related volumes and materials from around the world.
This global collection contains GIS census data as well as all available published volumes, supporting questionnaires and other census ephemera. Each census comes with an East View-produced census bibliography, which serves as a finding aid and provides historical context.
The Global Census Archive offers a robust resource for scholars and analysts to find current and historic census data, including all available GIS data and published content that accompanies the release of a census.
Every census has official authoritative elements that East View aggregates, processes and makes discoverable on an intuitive and easy-to-use eResources platform. While the availability and type of materials will vary by country, examples of typical materials include:
Since the beginning of the 2000s, authorities around the world have increasingly made the census output available as geographic information system (GIS) formatted data. East View acquires the official outputs and employs a workflow to ensure the data can be used by several GIS platforms.
