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 Brazil de jure census collected data through face-to-face interviews. The census day was August 1, 2010, and data collection continued until October 30. A 5% sample of households from the census (9,693,053 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
