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 Portugal de jure census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment for those 15 and older, education, migration, and disability. The census day was March 12, 2001 and fieldwork was carried out from February to June 2001. A 5% sample of dwellings from the census (517,026 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
