The Demopædia Encyclopedia on Population is under heavy modernization and maintenance. Outputs could look bizarre, sorry for the temporary inconvenience

The registers mentioned in the preceding paragraphs are distinct from the population registers1 of those countries which possess a system of continuous registration2. In these registers every member of the population or every family may be represented by a card3, and the register is maintained4 or kept up to date4 through information which reaches it through the local registration officers and through registration of changes of residence5. It is generally collated6 (cf. 130-9*) or matched6 with the census results and brought up to date at regular intervals by special checks7.
