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 2006 Burkina Faso census was both de facto and de jure. The census days were from December 9-23, 2006, and data were collected through face-to-face interviews. A 10% self-weighted sample of households from the census (1,417,824 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
