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 1963 Uruguay census collected data through face-to-face interviews on the subjects of housing, household demographics, employment, education, and migration. The census day was October 16. Coverage of the population was 97.9%.

A 10% sample of households from the census (268,248 individuals) is available through IPUMS International at the University of Minnesota. Dwelling and vacant dwelling units are not identified in the microdata. Refer to the IPUMS website for guidelines on citing database versions.
