New data from the 2022 Census released this Friday (2) by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) bring, for the first time, all the geographic coordinates and types of buildings that make up the 111 million addresses in Brazil registered during the research.

The vast majority of addresses are private residences, that is, houses and apartments. In second place are commercial establishments with “other purposes”, such as commerce, cultural or public buildings. See your city on the map below:

Main types of address in Brazil:

  • Private households (houses, apartments): 90.6 million
  • Establishments for other purposes (shops, public and cultural buildings): 11.7 million
  • Agricultural establishments: 4 million
  • Buildings under construction: 3.5 million
  • Religious establishments (churches and temples): 579.7 thousand
  • Educational establishment (schools, daycare centers, universities): 264.4 thousand
  • Health establishment (hospitals, clinics, emergency rooms): 247.5 thousand
  • Collective households (hotels, prisons, guesthouses, nursing homes): 104.5 thousand

According to IBGE, the greater precision of the survey It can be an important tool for urban planning and the creation of specific public policies.

It is possible, for example, to map households impacted by environmental phenomena such as floods, landslides, fires and droughts. Or count the services offered to the population according to demographic density.

Other data from the 2022 Census

Information from the 2022 Census began to be released in June 2023. Since then, it has been possible to know that:

  • Brazil has 203 million inhabitants, a smaller number than estimated by initial projections;
  • The country continues to become increasingly feminine and older. The median age of a Brazilian went from 29 years old (in 2010) to 35 years old (in 2022). This means that half of the population is under 35 years old, and the other half is older than that. There are around 104.5 million women, 51.5% of all Brazilians;
  • 1.3 million people who identify as quilombolas (0.65% of the total) – it was the first time in history that the Census included questions in its questionnaires to identify this group;
  • The number of indigenous people grew 89%, to 1.7 million, in relation to the 2010 Census. This can be explained by the change in mapping and research methodology for indigenous peoples, which allowed more people to be identified;
  • For the first time, Brazilians declared themselves more brown than white, and the black population grew.
