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 Nepal 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 married women aged 15-49. The census day was June 22, 2001 and the fieldwork period was June 11-21. An 11.35% sample of households from the census (2,583,245 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Dwellings and vacant units are not identified in the sample. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
