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 2000 Malaysia de jure census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment for those 10 and older, education, migration, disability, and fertility for women 10 and older who had ever been married and lived in Sarawak, Labuan, or Sabah. The census day was July 5, 2000, and fieldwork continued until July 20. A 2% sample of occupied living quarters from the census (435,300 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
