Abstract: An online integrated information system for Demography is a web-based application that provides inputs and outputs information support to admin/users in order to update their demographic information. Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa. The absence of virtually any reliable current demographic data has not prevented national and international bodies from generating estimates and projections of population and population growth in Nigeria. Papers and pens is the usual method use in sourcing demographic information which is time consuming and waste of resources. In view of the availability of new technologies, this paper mainly concentrates on improving the manual methods in adopting a Browser Server structure to design an online integrated information system for demography. MyEclipse was used as an integrated environment for development of web-base application and JSP, were served as the programming language. Microsoft SQL server (2005) served as a relational data base management application for handling the data used.
