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 2001 Jamaica de jure census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment for those 14 and older, migration, education, disability, health status, crime, and fertility for women 14 and older. The census day was September 10, 2001. A 10% differentially weighted sample of households from the census (205,179 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. The IPUMS sample covers data from the long form questionnaire which was administered to 10% of the population. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
