AbstractThe General Population Census of Cambodia, 1998 was conducted on 3 March 1998. This was the first census held in 36 years. The Geographical frame for the 1998 census followed the defined structure of province, district, commune and village. In total there are 24 provinces in the country which include the municipality of Phnom Penh and the "Krong" or "Towns" of Preah Sihanouk, Kaeb and Pailin. These provinces are divided into 183 districts which are subdivided into 1,609 communes containing 13,406 villages. Census enumeration covered the entire inhabited geographical areas with the exception of a few areas which were inaccessible during the census due to military operations. These areas were: (i) Whole districts of Anlong Veaeng in Otdar Mean Chey province, Samlot in Bat Dambang province and Veal Veaeng in Pousat province (ii) Ou Bei Choan village of Ou Chrov district in Banteay Mean Chey province. The population in these excluded areas is estimated to be about 45,000. The refugee population, temporarily displaced to Thailand, was not included in the census as it was conducted on a de facto basis. There are 7 tables: A general-purpose, village-level database containing village names, urban/rural classification, and number of households, number of regular households, number of males, number of females and total number of persons in the village; a village-level database on relationship to head of household and marital status for all males and females in the village; a village-level database on age in five-year age groups for all males and females in the village; a village-level database on literacy, school attendance and educational attainment; a village-level database on household amenities (characteristics) for all regular (or normal) households in the village; a village-level database on age in single years for males and females aged 5 to 24; and an auxiliary database containing the names for the provinces, districts and communes in Cambodia.
