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 1991 Spain de jure and de facto population and housing census was based on the building census taken on October 15, 1990. The population and housing census collected data through self-enumeration on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment, education, migration, and fertility. There were five questionnaires for private dwellings, individuals, collective dwellings, secondary dwellings with no registered dwellers, and buildings. The census day was March 1, 1991 and fieldwork continued until April 1. A 5% differentially weighted sample of dwellings from the census (1,931,458 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
