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 1983 Guinea de facto and de jure census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment for those 10 and older, education, and fertility for women 15 and older. The census day was February 1, 1983, and fieldwork was done February 1-15. A 10% sample of dwellings from the census (457,837 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
