Abstract

The first general census of Mauritania took place recently: the so-called sedentary population was enumerated in December 1976, and the so-called Nomads between February and April, 1977. Previously, the different sections of the Mauritanian population had been enumerated separately, e.g. the count of the nomadic population in 1965. As is to be expected, it is chiefly the enumeration of the Nomads which presents problems. In order to obtain a representative sample, difficulties of definition, of making contact in the field, and of statistical processing need to be solved. As the present Census differed in significant respects from the previous one, particular interest is attached to the methodological aspects of this enquiry.
