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 2004 Morocco de jure census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment, education, migration, disability, and fertility. The census day was September 1, 2004 and data collection lasted for 15 days.

A 5% sample of dwellings from the census (1,482,720 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Dwelling and group quarter units are not identified in the sample. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
