Census data are collected every 5 years, population estimates are done every year. For each census the data has to be retrieved individually (so there is no link to datasets containing time series). As the submitter states: "This data is very well described and has excellent accompanying documentation."

Thank you, Tracey P. Lauriault, for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
