NONMEM is an extremely powerful tool for nonlinear mixed-effect modelling and simulation of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data. It is, however, a console-based application whose output does not lend itself to rapid interpretation or efficient management. Census was created to be a comprehensive project manager for NONMEM, providing detailed summary, comparison and overview of the runs comprising a given project, including the display of output data, simple post-run processing, diagnostic plots and run output management, complementary to other available modelling aids. Analysis time ought not to be spent on trivial, error-prone tasks such as transcribing run results, and the role of Census is to eliminate these as far as possible by increasing the efficiency of the modelling process.

Census has grown and adapted considerably over its 12-year lifespan. It started as a Windows-only application, developed as part of my Ph.D at the University of Cape Town, in 2001. Since then, it has evolved into a cross-platform, fully open-source application, supporting both Windows and Apple platforms (and, in principle, Linux as well). Census is free software, and will always remain so.
