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 2010 Ecuador de facto census collected data through face-to-face interviews. The census day was November 28, 2010, and data collection was completed in December. A 10% self-weighted sample of households from the census (1,448,233 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
