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 1962 Paraguay Population and Housing Census collected data through face-to-face interviews. The census day was October 14, 1962. A 5% self-weighted sample of households from the census (90,236 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
