Methods for disaggregation of population with unknown place of residence
Principle 2, Principle 5, gridded population data, census, disaggregation
This case study demonstrates different methods on how to disaggregate population with unknown place of residence into fictive places of usual residence, or into grids. The paper discusses these methods and indicates their advantages and disadvantages. The case was prepared by the Czech Statistical Office as part of the GEOSTAT 1B project in 2011. Though the case is more than 10 years old, the methods presented are still valid and the case provides valuable insights in how to manage non-matching observations, such as population with unknown place of residence.
