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 1989 Mongolia de facto and de jure census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment, education, and fertility. The census day was January 5, 1989 and fieldwork continued until January 9. A 10% differentially weighted sample of households from the census (190,631 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
