The Government of Burma held a national census over several stages between 1953 and 1957. The Census Commissioner was ICS U Kyaw Khine. He was assisted by the (US AID funded) UN census adviser Milton Lieberman. In this 1953 photo, they are asking the first census question to President Dr. Ba U at the President's House. (Sorry for the poor quality of the photo).
