Supporting countries in the collection, analysis and dissemination of census data for development is a critical part of UNFPA's mandate. UNFPA plays key roles in coordinating technical and financial assistance for censuses -- support can include resource mobilization, the provision of chief technical advisers, training in technical communication and advocacy, operating publicity campaigns, as well as developing census budgets, road maps, and instruments, such as questionnaires and manuals.
Global Pulse is the United Nations Secretary-General's flagship innovation initiative on big data.
