The Conteo de Población y Vivienda (Count of Population and Housing) is a national census compiled by the government of Mexico, taken intermedially between the more comprehensive national general censuses (Censo General de Población y Vivienda). Like the general census, the Conteo is conducted on a decennial basis—every ten years in a year ending in 5, while the censo general is conducted in years ending in 0. The first conteo was conducted in 1995, and the second in 2005, intermediate between the last censo general in 2000 and the next scheduled census in 2010.

The responsibility for designing and carrying out the conteo and the general census lies with the national statistics body, INEGI (Instituto Nacional de Estadística, Geografía e Informática).
