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 2000 Brazil de jure census collected data through face-to-face interviews on housing conditions, family composition, income, educational attainment, employment for those 10 and older, migration, and fertility for women 10 and older. The census day was August 1, 2000 and fieldwork continued until December. A differentially weighted sample of approximately 6% of households from the census (10,136,022 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
