Censuses and Surveys
The Census of Population and Dwellings is conducted every five years under the authority of the Statistics Act 1966. This is a five-yearly stock-take of the people of the Cook Islands and their housing, which the Cook Islands Statistics Office (CISO) normally undertakes.
Sample surveys on the other hand are conducted at irregular intervals due to high costs involved, thus securing funds for such activity is often difficult. The latest survey conducted by the CISO was the Household Expenditure in 2004.
