The 1990 Turkey Census was the 13th of its kind in the country. Census day was October 21, 1990, and the questionnaire covered both household and individual characteristics. There were inaccuracies in some of the building lists created at the municipality level. Enumerators had some difficulty identifying addresses, and some streets and buildings were unintentionally missed.
