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 Luxembourg 2001 Census of Population was the 35th conducted since 1839. Data was collected initially on February 15, 2001 via enumerator-distributed and completed questionaires. After the initial enumeration, based on instructions from the National Statistical Institute, coverage was checked, confirmed, and missing data was provided by administrative division through the use of population registers. The data processing phase was outsourced to a private company, and then disseminated by the Statistical Institute. The total population for 2001 in Luxembourg was 439,539.
