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 1960 Chile de facto census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, migration, employment for individuals 12 and older, education, and fertility for women 12 and older. The census day was November 29, 1960. A 1.2% sample of the census (88,184 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Dwellings, vacant units, and households are not identified in the sample. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
