The main difference between a census and a survey is that a census is intended to collect information about every member of the relevant population.

Statistics: Survey of an entire population, as opposed to a sample survey.

A population survey, better known as a census, entails the collection of each unit in the population. In sample survey information is collected from a subset of the population. The subset, or sample, needs to be selected carefully so that it is representative of the whole population and, if that requirement is met, statistics based on the sample are good estimators for the corresponding population parameters.

You need information to make decisions. That information can be obtained by doing a comprehensive study - a census - a smaller study - a survey. A census is likely to be much more expensive and slower to produce results. Although the results of a survey will be estimates of the true values, a well organised survey can deliver sufficiently accurate results more quickly and cheaply. Surveys can be particularly useful for interpolation between censuses on which they are benchmarked - although when conducted, the survey is usually extrapolating.

A sample survey is quicker and cheaper. If the survey is well designed then the results are likely to be close to their true values.
