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 Uganda de jure and de facto census collected data through face-to-face interviews. Subjects covered included housing, household demographics, employment and education for those 5 and older, disability, household deaths, agriculture and fertility for women 15 and older. In addition to the household questionnaire, a community questionnaire was administered to community leaders. The census day was September 12, 2002, and fieldwork lasted 7 days.

A 10% sample of households and institutions (2,497,449 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Vacant units are not identified in the microdata. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
