Census statistics have been the core of social architecture for thousands of years and it is the key
tool that directs huge amounts of funding for nation states. Yet the purpose and methods have altered little
in that period. In a time of great change in our cities
due to rapid urban development, increasing technology prevalence, open data movements and growing civic movements; it is now time to re imagine the census and view it as a tool that engages and empowers citizens and governments with the information it collects to support the basic human needs of city citizens. The project explores developing a pilot between India and the UK to re-imagine the future census.
