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 2001 Bolivia de facto census collected data through face-to-face interviews on housing, household demographics, employment for individuals 7 and older, education for individuals 4 and older, migration, disability, household and maternal deaths, and fertility for women 15 and older. The census day was September 1, 2001. A 10% sample of dwellings from the census (827,692 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
