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 Spain de jure census collected data through self-enumeration on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment, education, and migration. A section was included for verifying and updating Spain's registry data. The census day was November 1, 2001, and the fieldwork continued for two months. A 5% differentially weighted sample of dwellings from the census (2,039,274 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
