The CensusAtSchool International Project

The Project aims to;

  • Encourage children to get involved with data handling and learn statistical skills;
  • Provide real data for data handling activities;
  • Increase awareness of what national censuses are and what they are for;
  • Show how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can be used effectively to enhance teaching and learning especially in the area of data handling.

It is presently running in the UK, Ireland, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, USA, Japan and Korea. Data can also be obtained for Queensland (2001 & 2003) and South Australia (2003 & 2004).
