Why did Roman emperor Augustus order a census of the Roman empire?
Augustus could order a census for various reasons. He ordered the first census (as Octavian) in order to get the people to back his war effort. Other times they were for voting counts and to determine the amount of taxes a province could be expected to pay and the number of troops that could be raised in an area.

Asked in Roman Empire
Why did Augustus order a census of the Roman Empire?
As Augustus, he didn't order a separate census, as it was customary for a census or at least a partial census to be taken every five years. However as Octavian, before he gained supreme power, he ordered a census to determine if the Roman people were willing to swear loyalty to him in his war against Antony and Cleopatra. If you are thinking about the census that was referred to in the New Testament, that one was ordered in the name of Caesar Augustus, by the governor of Syria who had "imperium". Imperium meant that whoever held it had the same authority as Caesar in his province.

The members of the Constitutional Convention are responsible for creating the United States Census. In 1787, the US became the first nation to make a census mandatory.
