A census is a count and description of the population. Censuses were taken primarily for taxation or military purposes.

Hungarian censuses may not be as helpful as censuses from other countries because better sources, such as church records and civil registration, are available for Hungary.

Census records of some towns and regions may be accessible at various archives, but most are presently not available to researchers.

Use census information carefully since accurate information may not have been given to or understood by the census taker.
