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 1981 Austria de jure census collected data through face-to-face interviews and self-enumeration on household demographics, housing conditions, education, employment for individuals 15 and older, migration, household expenditures on housing and utilities, and the number of live births per each woman 16 years and older. The questionnaire was comprised of a Persons section, a Dwelling section for residents, a Buildings section for owners of real estate, and a Household List. The census day was May 12, 1981. A 10% sample of private households and 10% sample of institutional households (836,833 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
