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 1990 Hungary de jure census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment, education, disability, and fertility for women 15 and older. The census day was January 1, 1990 and fieldwork was done January 2 - February 3. A 5% sample of dwellings from the census (518,240 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
