Latvia Census Data

Census data provides unparalleled insight into the lives of individuals. Latvia 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 census data is stored in a complex database structure, with attribute descriptions in English and Latvian, 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.

East View offers the following census data for Latvia (see below for details):
