Methods of data collection in the 1980 census round in Latin America are described and evaluated. The authors first note that 16 out of 20 countries concerned have already carried out censuses in this decade. They describe how these censuses contain more data on fertility, mortality, and international migration than in the past. Problems involved in preparing reasonable estimates for such demographic variables are considered, including the preparation of questionnaires, census omissions, lack of response, and the use of sampling.
