Data collecton for the 2009 Vanuatu Census began on November 16, 2009 and was completed in most areas within two weeks.

Institutions included boarding schools, prisons, hospitals, hostels, guesthouses, and passenger boats.

This census provides population numbers, household or family size and composition, and information on sex and age distribution. It also covers the labor force, education, fertility, orphanhood, various social topics, migration, health, and household characteristics.
