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 2000 Panama de facto 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 women 12 and older. The census day was May 14, 2000. A 10% sample of dwellings from the census (284,081 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
