201-11 (Double checked)

The term population movement 11★ is used to refer to the geographical movement of a population.--Nicolas Brouard 09:09, 2 July 2013 (CEST)
Original: A post-enumeration survey 9 is taken after a census to verify the accuracy and completeness of enumeration.
Proposition: To verify the accuracy and completeness of enumeration (230-2), a post-enumeration check 8★ is performed using a post-enumeration survey 9.--Nicolas Brouard 09:32, 2 July 2013 (CEST)
No remark form Stan Becker and Patrick Heuveline. Double checked. --Nicolas Brouard (talk) 17:32, 28 December 2017 (CET)

202-7 (double-checked)

  • 202-7 It is 'pretest' (done). Also some survey folks distinguish pretests from pilot tests. I forget which is which but one is for the questionnaire testing and one tests all the survey procedures (e.g. supervision, checking, even data entry....). I could ask DHS if you wish to make the distinction. --Stan BECKER 16:03, 29 September 2014 (CEST)
pre-test was first used by Eugen Grebenik in the first 'English' edition.--Nicolas Brouard 16:22, 29 September 2014 (CEST)

  • present tense 'include' seems better. (done).--Stan BECKER 16:09, 29 September 2014 (CEST)

203-8 (double-checked)

  • 203-8 Maybe we need to add here computer assisted interviewing (CASI) and phone interviews, etc?--Stan BECKER 16:11, 29 September 2014 (CEST)
True, but this is a fast evolving field (CASI, phone interviews, internet samples, etc...). I think we're better off, in the interest of time, sticking with what needs correction. Suggest no change. Patrick HEUVELINE (talk) 17:56, 18 July 2017 (CEST)
I agree too. Double checked. --Nicolas Brouard (talk) 17:30, 28 December 2017 (CET)

204-4 (double-checked)

  • This seems unduly 'Northern' country oriented. Most countries have a National Statistical Office which is responsible I believe. Doubtful that we need to focus on UK and USA. --Stan BECKER 16:16, 29 September 2014 (CEST)
There was a closing bracket which hided some other National Statistical Offices: ; in England and Wales it is the General Register Office, in Scotland the General Registry Office; both are headed by a Registrar General. . But still 'Northern country oriented, I agree.--Nicolas Brouard 16:21, 29 September 2014 (CEST)
I agree but again, in the interest of time, I suggest to focus on correcting errors rather than trying to improve the text. Suggest no change. Patrick HEUVELINE (talk) 17:58, 18 July 2017 (CEST)

205-8 (Double checked)

  • Order is strange here. I would switch last 2 sentences as refusal of whole interview is very different from refusal of a particular question.--Stan BECKER 16:28, 29 September 2014 (CEST)
Agree with Stan's suggestion, modification madePatrick HEUVELINE (talk) 11:05, 20 July 2017 (CEST)

207-1 (double checked)

  • I have never heard of an individual schedule for a census. It has always been a household schedule with listing of individuals. Maybe women of repro age are given a schedule in some censuses???--Stan BECKER 16:31, 29 September 2014 (CEST)
I don't know either, someone with census experience should finalize. Patrick HEUVELINE (talk) 11:10, 20 July 2017 (CEST)
Stan Becker agrees that if it was already in the first edition, as in many other languages, we keep it:--Nicolas Brouard (talk) 03:28, 27 April 2018 (CEST)--Nicolas Brouard (talk) 03:28, 27 April 2018 (CEST)
