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 1992 Chile de facto census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, migration, employment for individuals 14 and older, education, disability, and fertility for women 14 and older. The census day was April 22, 1992. A 10% sample of dwellings from the census (1,335,055 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
