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 1970 Hungary de jure census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment of those 14 and older, and education. The census day was January 1, 1970 and fieldwork was done January 1-12. A 5% sample of dwellings from the census (515,119 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
