Censuses provide population numbers, household or family size and composition, and information on sex and age distribution. They often include other demographic, economic, and health-related topics as well. The 2010 Argentina de facto census collected data through face-to-face interviews. The census day was October 27, 2010. A 10% self-weighted sample of households from the census (3,966,245 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
