The author begins with the challenges of the population census round of 2020 and gives an outline of the methods of quality assessment of population census data. Next, the synthesis of two Eurostat documents (2007, 2009) and UN Statistics Division (2010) monograph relating to census data quality assessment are considered. Special attention is paid to three methods of census quality assessment: (i) demographic method, (ii) post-enumeration survey, and (iii) comparison with existing household surveys. Census quality assessment methods are discussed in the context of the international recommendations and experience of selected countries. Some Polish experience in these fields is also discussed, and some suggestions to the 2021 Polish Census of Population and Housing preparations are given.
