The direct method and indirect method. The direct method is more hands-on with each person within the population and allows factual evidence to come forth primarily from reliable statistics registries/censuses. The indirect method uses responses from only a portion of the population to inquire data about the entire group. (This is a common technique for countries who are still developing.)
