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 2002 Romania de jure census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment, education, migration, and fertility. The census day was March 18, 2002 and fieldwork continued until March 27. Census coverage was 99.83% of the population. A 10% sample of households from the census (2,137,967 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Vacant units and group quarters are not available in the sample. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
