It was the 11th census of population and 5th census of housing undertaken in this country since the first census in 1903.

Census day for the Census 2000 was May 1, 2000 (12:01 a.m.). Enumeration started on May 1, 2000 and lasted for about 30 days.

Being a highly urbanized city, the population of Angeles City was excluded in the population counts of Pampanga.
