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 Switzerland de facto census, known alternately as Eidgenössische Volkszählung and Recensement fédéral de la population, collected data through face-to-face interviews and self-enumeration on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment, and education. Respondents filled out person, household, and building questionnaires. The census day was December 5, 2000. A 5% sample of households from the census (364,086 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota.
