Global Census Data

East View's Global Census Archive contains census data formatted into a geodatabase which allows the user to search for information and visualize the data using GIS software. For each country, the archive includes a geodatabase with administrative boundary vector data; shapefiles (all vector and census data in ESRI shapefile format); instructions on how to query and visualize data; original census documentation in the native format; and metadata in FGDC ISO format.
