Population Census Conference > Introduction
ANCSDAAP's major activity is to organize the Population Census Conferences that are conducted at intervals of approximately 1.5 to 2 years. The first Population Census Conference took place at the East-West Center in Honolulu in 1971.
All Population Census Conferences since 1991, starting with the 14th, have been conducted under the auspices of ANCSDAAP and hosted either by a census and statistics office in the region or by the East-West Center. 

In 2013, Statistics Korea (KOSTAT) undertook the duties of the Secretariat of ANCSDAAP from the East-West Center at the 26th Population Census Conference and continues to provide secretariat services to ANCSDAAP. The 27th Population Census Conference was held in Tokyo, Japan, November 5-7, 2014 and hosted by the ANCSDAAP in cooperation with the Statistics Bureau of Japan (SBJ) and the new secretariat, KOSTAT. And the 28th Population Census Conference was held in Minneapolis, MN, United States in 2016 co-hosted by the United States Census Bureau and the Minnesota Population Center (MPC).

Under the theme "Innovative Approaches to Enhance the Quality of the 2020 Round of Census", the 29th Population Census Conference co-hosted by ANCSDAAP and the General Statistics Office of Vietnam will take place in Da Nang, Viet Nam, July 11-13, 2018.
