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 2005 Nicaragua census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment, education, migration, disability, household deaths, fertility, and civil registration. The census day was June 5.

A 10% sample of households from the census (515,485 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
