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 1980 Indonesia census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment, education, fertility, disability, health status, and contraceptive use. The census day was 31 October.

A 5% sample of census blocks that received the long form census (7,234,577 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Dwelling and vacant dwelling units are not identified in the microdata. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
