Malawi - Population and Housing Census 1998 - IPUMS Subset

IPUMS-International is an effort to inventory, preserve, harmonize, and disseminate census microdata from around the world. The project has collected the world's largest archive of publicly available census samples. The data are coded and documented consistently across countries and over time to facillitate comparative research. IPUMS-International makes these data available to qualified researchers free of charge through a web dissemination system. The IPUMS project is a collaboration of the Minnesota Population Center, National Statistical Offices, and international data archives. Major funding is provided by the U.S. National Science Foundation and the Demographic and Behavioral Sciences Branch of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. Additional support is provided by the University of Minnesota Office of the Vice President for Research, the Minnesota Population Center, and Sun Microsystems.

National Statistical Office; Minnesota Population Center - University of Minnesota
Questionnaires: 
There are 2 questionnaires: (i) Census questionnaire which collects information on characteristics of individual household members, household information and dwelling unit characteristics and access facilities; (ii) Record of vacant and other structure which collects information on main use of the structures and materials used for construction
Sampling Procedure: 
MICRODATA SOURCE: National Statistical Office SAMPLE UNIT: Household SAMPLE FRACTION: 10% SAMPLE SIZE (person records): 991,393
Study Type: 
Population and Housing Census [hh/popcen]
Unit of Analysis: 
HouseholdUNITS IDENTIFIED:- Dwellings: No- Vacant units: No- Households: Yes- Individuals: Yes- Group quarters: Yes- Special populations: NoUNIT DESCRIPTIONS:- Dwellings: A dwelling unit may be defined as any structure, permanent or temporary, where people sleep. It may be hut, a house, a store with a sleeping room or rooms at the back or sides, a shelter of reeds/straw such as those used by fishermen, or any other structure where people sleep.- Households: A household consists of one or more persons, related or unrelated, who live together and make common provision for food. They regularly take all their food from the same pot, and/or share the same grain store (nkhokwe) or pool their incomes for the purpose of purchasing food. Persons in a household may live in one or more dwelling units.- Group quarters: Public places such as hospitals, markets, hotels, and rest houses.
Universe: 
All persons present in Malawi at the time of census, including both Malawians and foreigners
Version Description: 
Version 6.4. The datasets contain selected variables from the original census microdata plus harmonized variables from the IPUMS-International database.In v6.4, the research team continued to carry out improvements to geography, providing harmonized geographic units for the second administrative level for roughly half the countries. More information about IPUMS geography variables is available here. Also, approximately 100 integrated variables were renamed. Affected variables with their current and previous names are listed here. Geography variable also underwent wholesale renaming.In this update, IPUMS added 19 new samples for Armenia, Austria, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, France, Ghana, Mozambique, Paraguay, Portugal, Puerto Rico, South Africa, and Spain. Ethiopia, Mozambique, and Paraguay were newly added countries to IPUMS. Samples for other countries extend pre-existing series for those countries.
