Country examples of data collection on statelessness statistics

This document serves as a background paper to the Report of the Expert Group on Refugee, Internally Displaced Persons and Statelessness Statistics on statelessness statistics E/CN.3/2022/10.

The document provides evidence that it is possible to collect data on stateless persons by showcasing the experience of six countries including stateless persons in their data collection exercises. The examples include: (1) Kenyan Population and Housing Census 2019, (2) Norwegian Population Register, (3) Côte d ’Ivoire Statelessness Survey, (4) Kenya Shona Survey, (5) Thailand’s measures to promote birth registration and prevent statelessness, and (6) National coordination of statelessness statistics in The Philippines.
