Burundi Census Data

Census data provides unparalleled insight into the lives of individuals. Burundi census offerings from East View address a wide range of topics at the highest level of detail possible and offer a premier source of demographic data for academic research.

When initially acquired, the Burundi census data is stored in a complex database structure, with attribute descriptions in French, limiting access to those with significant database management and programming experience. East View simplifies access, formatting the collection into an easy-to-use geodatabase which can be visualized using any GIS software as well as providing a comprehensive guide. Additionally, East View provides the original census documentation, allowing researchers to see first-hand how the data was gathered.
