Census methodology

Dear Sir,

Internet census survey introduced since 2005. What is the % of household complete the survey on internet and other modes of response) in 2005-2015?

Population censuses have been conducted every 5 year before 2015 but census result 2016 has been released.  Is a rolling census based on administrative data conducted after 2015?  Can I find more about the methodology of Korea census? Thanks

Dear david.

Thank you for visiting the KOSIS website.

The Population and Housing Census includes the complete survey and the sample survey. As for the complete survey, the Register-based  Population and Housing Census has been annually carried out by using administrative data since 2015, and a rolling census is not carried out. As for the sample survey, the Census is carried out every 5 years. As for survey methodology, at first, the Internet survey is applied. Afterwards, a face-to-face interviewing method is applied to non-respondents. In the 2005 Census, 0.9% of respondents used the Internet survey. And in the 2010 and 2015 Census, 47.9% and 48.6% of respondents used the Internet survey, respectively. 

Thank you.
