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 2007 Palestine de facto census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment for those 7 and older, education, disability, and fertility. The census day was December 1, 2007 and the fieldwork continued until December 16. Coverage was all households residing in the West Bank at the time of enumeration. A 10% differentially weighted sample of households from the census (455,019 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
