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 2008 Cambodia de jure and de facto census collected data through face-to-face interviews on housing, household demographics, employment, education, migration, disability, household and maternal deaths, causes of death, and fertility for women 15 and older. The census day was March 3, 2008 and field work was carried out March 3-13. A 10% sample of households from the census (1,340,121 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
