A population and housing census will be take place in Estonia from 31 March to 9 April 2000, with the aim of collecting comperehensive information about the structure and distribution of the population and housing.
The first ever count of the population in present-day Estonia was carried out by the Danes after their conquest of the northern part of the country in 1219-20. In more modern times, the practice of counting the population began in late 17th century, but the first census to cover the whole of present-day Estonia was held in 1881. In the 20th century, censuses have been more or less regular in Estonia, the last of them took place in 1989. The census of 2000 will be the tenth in Estonia since 1881.
