The conference is organized to present the findings of 2014 Population Census Data In-depth Analysis.

2014 Census Data In-depth Analysis is of particular importance to the development of human rights-based policies. The in-depth analysis of Census data provides evidence for policy formulation and planning with special focus on the areas such as sexual and reproductive health and rights, adolescents and youth, aging, population dynamics, and gender.

During 2016-2017, within the frames of the Sweden funded UNFPA-GeoStat Project - Improving Statistic Data Availability in Georgia, UNFPA provided technical support to the National Statistics Office (GeoStat) in undertaking the in-depth analysis of the 2014 Census data regarding  population dynamics issues, ageing, youth issues, as well as gender analysis of the census data. The analytical monographs were developed by the renowned international experts in close collaboration with the national counterparts and in consultation with the relevant government agencies.

The conference will bring together the representatives of the Parliament, relevant government entities, the National Statistics Office of Georgia, representatives of academia, research organizations, civic society, and international organizations.
