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 Indonesia census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment, education, and fertility. The census was de jure for permanent residents and de facto for non-permanent residents. Enumeration occured on October 31.

A 0.51% sample of census blocks that received the long form census (912,544 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.
