UNFPA, in partnership with the PARIS21 Census Task Team, and with additional support provided by EUROSTAT and the United States Bureau of the Census, organised an international conference to review budgetary and funding issues related to conducting censuses so as to try to ensure stability in the future funding of cost-effective censuses.

The UNFPA/PARIS21 International Expert Group Meeting on Mechanisms for Ensuring Continuity of 10-Year Population Censuses: Strategies for Reducing Census Costs was held in Pretoria, on 26-29 November 2001 and hosted by the Government of South Africa. This report contains a summary of the papers presented and their discussions, along with the conclusions, recommendations and next steps adopted by all participants on the final day of the meeting.
