This Seminar has been organized by the Secretariat of the Economic Commission for Africa in co-operation with the United Nations Bureau of Social Affairs Statistical Office and Bureau of Technical Assistance Operation and the Government of the United Arab Republic as host. In the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland very nearly all the population estimates and projections are prepared by the Central Statistical Office. The only exceptions of any significance are firstly, annual estimates relating to the indigenous population, that is exclusive of migrants from neighboring territories, published by the Territorial Government departments responsible for African affairs and secondly, occasional estimates prepared by the University College of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. However, even with those exceptions the Central Statistical Office is often consulted before the calculations are finalized.
