A Census of the Population of Saorstat Eireann is to be taken on 26th April, 1936. As an item of propaganda in connection with the preparatory work for Censuses of Population it has been customary to read before this Society a Paper on Population Censuses. This Paper, accordingly, will explain in brief the history and purposes of Censuses in general, and the results and method of compilation of the last Census taken in the Saorstat. In this country there is not the same amount of assistance, by way of criticism, available from non-official quarters to the officials charged with the duty of Census taking, as is the case in other countries, and I would be glad if this Paper will help to stimulate an outside interest in Census-taking.
