Study TitleCensus of the British Solomon Islands Protectorate, 1970
Primary InvestigatorGroenewegen, S. K. Horton, D.
ADA IDau.edu.anu.ada.ddi.00768
AbstractThe 1970 Census of the British Solomon Islands Protectorate was the first true Census which enumerated the whole protectorate. The Census provides an idea of family structure, population distribution, fertility, ethnicity, education and religion. Key to Migration (from place of birth) data could not be found. Therefore this data was removed from this version of the dataset.
