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 1984 Ethiopia Population and Housing Census collected data through face-to-face interviews. Two questionaires were used, one in rural areas and another in urban areas. The census day was May 9, 1984. A 10% self-weighted sample of households from the census (3,404,306 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
