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 2011 Costa Rica census collected data through face-to-face interviews. The census day was May 30, 2011. A 10% self-weighted sample of households from the census (430,082 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
