1.5- Division of the national territory
Côte d'Ivoire is divided into 16 administrative regions, each region being composed of several departments, further divided into sub-prefectures and/or communes.

For purposes of, first, the rational organization of field data collection teams and, second, ensuring compliance with the technical requirements of the RGPH-98, namely, the exhaustiveness and the simultaneous nature of the count itself, the national territory is divided into very small territorial units, which are juxtaposed in such a way as to cover the precise area of the various administrative districts in question (sub-prefectures, communes, departments, regions, and Côte d'Ivoire as a whole). These territorial units, which are homogeneous in terms of the workload required to complete the population counts within the prescribed time frame, are called Census Districts (CDs). Each sub-prefecture or commune is thus subdivided into Census Districts. The CD is therefore a portion of the national territory entrusted to a Census Taker who must, within a period of no more than three weeks, identify all the households living there. It is the work area of a Census Taker.

The Census District is a carefully demarcated portion of the territory of the sub-prefecture or commune, composed of one or more blocks, villages, or camps, in which all the households of which you must take a census reside. On average, a Census District includes between 1,000 and 1,200 people. The borders of a CD often follow natural obstacles or elements of infrastructure (waterways, mountains, railways, etc.) or the boundaries of administrative districts.

In towns and core villages, the CD boundary actually passes through the middle of a roadway. The CD consists of the following:

a) - In urban areas, the CD consists of one or more blocks or one or more neighborhoods, depending on the population density of the Area.
b) - In rural areas, the CD may consist of:
- the core village alone;
- the core village along with all associated camps;
- a portion of the core village, with or without associated camps;
- several core villages, along with the camps associated with them;
- only the camps surrounding a core village, etc.

The CD file provides all the information about its composition and key characteristics.
