Summary 

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 1985 Turkey de facto census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of household demographics, employment, education, migration, disability, and fertility. The census day was October 20.

A 5% sample from the census of households and individuals enumerated outside of households (2,507,758 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Dwelling and vacant dwelling units are not identified in the sample. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
