8.6.5 Census Tools

Level of expertise required for this Chapter: Intermediate; specifically for LUPMIS @ TCPD The compound formula is useful for population calculation over many years. It can easily be accessed through the tool 'Growth rate', to calculate:

  • The future population, if current population, growth rate and number of years are know, or

  • The growth rate, if past and current population are know (and number of years between)

The example below shows, that a population will more than double (from 100,000 to 215,892), if population growth is 8% per year, over 10 years: The 'Assign Grades to Settlements' Tool is the 1. of 3 function to process settlement data in combination with the GIS. This (re-) processing is very important whenever settlement data have been changed or added.

The '
Add District to settlements' function is the assignment of the District to each settlement, based on the GIS layer of settlements and Districts (overlay). 'Region --> District' breaks down the census data, which are normally entered and maintained on a regional level, to District level. You have to be logged in on District level, to 'copy' the regional census data to your District. Through Entry > Import: Settlement you can re-assign grades, i.e. gives the grade (hierarchy) of each settlement, based on their population size and on political status (capital). Through Entry > Import: District you can re-assign District codes, i.e. the number of the District will be given to the census database.
