Abstract

In recent times, Nigeria had made series of attempt to know the population dynamics of her people but the results have always been associated with incompleteness and inaccuracy. This study presents the modeling and simulation of the decision support system for population census in Nigeria. A structural framework to implement an accurate and complete population census is presented with analytical models for the classification and tabulation of population parameters such as relation to head of household, sex, age, disability, home local government area, home place, address, literacy, educational qualification, work status, type of employment, sector of employment, marital status, statistics of marriage were formulated. The analytical model was prototyped using the decision support systems approach. The Microsoft visual basic programming language and embedding Microsoft excel where used. A case study of Ilutitun community was carried out to demonstrate the practical implementation of the designed DSS and the result suggested the population structures of the community.
