One Response to “Table 4: Microanalysis of Census Data 1952 to 2006”

  1. BenChidi says:

    There is urgent need to advocate for the conduct of an IT-driven population and Housing census in Nigeria to generate credible geo-coded disaggregated population and housing data needed for informed planning, implementation and monitoring of SDG plans. Also to effectively plan and invest in the youths to reap demographic dividends, we need to know the youths, who they are, their educational and skills profile, where they are located in order to correctly target interventions accordingly.
