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 Senegal de facto and de jure census collected data via face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment for those 6 and older, education, disability, household deaths, and fertility for women 12 and older. A 10% sample of households from the census (994,562 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Dwellings, vacant units, and group quarters are not identified in the microdata. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
