Abstract

Pre-censal estimates help in proper planning for the execution of a census. After the end of a destabilizing war, these pre-censal estimates cannot be easily obtained. The paper proposes how pre-censal estimates can be obtained in the aftermath of a war using indirect estimation techniques. This involves the estimation of probabilities of mortality and of emigration obtained from survival models and multiple decrement life tables.
