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 Puerto Rico de jure census collected data through face-to-face interviews and self enumeration on subjects of housing, household demographics, education, migration, employment, and income. A single long form questionnaire was completed by approximately one-sixth of the population. The census day was April 1, 2000. A 5% differentially weighted sample of households (189,828 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Dwellings are not identified in the sample.
