Census Questions[edit | edit source]

The 1980 census collected the following information from all respondents:

  • Address
  • Name
  • Household relationship
  • Sex
  • Race
  • Age
  • Marital status
  • Whether of Spanish/Hispanic origin or descent
  • It was the first census not to ask for the name of the "head of household."

Approximately 16 percent of households received a "long form" of the 1980 census, which contained over 100 questions. Full documentation on the 1980 census, including census forms and a procedural history, is available from the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series. Wikipedia
