Free Online Event

Thomas MacEntee

Every US Federal Census had its procedures as well as its quirks. Do you know how to tell who was the “informant” in the 1930 or 1940 US Census? Do you know how to access the instructions given to enumerators for each census? Do you know what all the different “codes” mean? Do you know what happened to the population schedules once they were submitted by the enumerator? Learn the fascinating journey of US census data from the census planning phase to the final tabulation.
