The 1828 census is described quite well at

It is a census of individuals owning taxable property - which means it
does not include all households. The only personal information listed is:

1) the name of the head of the household
2) a count of people in each household, including servants, between the
ages of 18 and 60, of either sex and whether married or not,
contributing to the financial well-being of the household
3) some category describing who the other people are (I have seen
"Subinquilini" (tenant) and "Ancillae" (maid)).

All the other fields have to do with property. This is, unfortunately,
very little of genealogical significance - especially if you already
have the name of the head of household.

i haven't used that particular census before, but the title,
"vagyonossziras" translates as "wealth register", so it seems to only
list owners (i.e. heads of the household). but for what it's worth,
the small test that i did, showed a couple of men, and one listing
for a widow.
