AbstractThe General Population Census of Cambodia, 1998 was conducted on 3 March 1998.This was the first census held in 36 years. 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. This Cambodia Census application of POPMAP consists of a country map and maps for each of the 24 provinces. The country map has layers for the country, provinces and districts. The rpovincial maps have layers for the provinces, districts, and communes. Furthermore, information on villages, schools, routes and rivers is included for all maps. Demographic and social indicators included age, sex, religion, marital status, literacy, education, fertility rate, employment and household amenities. Data not available on Nesstar.
