New U.S. Census Bureau publication #general

jeremy frankel

Dear Genners,

I have recently been in email correspondence with the Census Bureau
finding out what the actual "Census Day" was for every census. The
person who helped me told me that the information and much more is in
the new edition of "Measuring America - The Decennial Censuses >from
1790 - 2000."

This is a glossy 150 page softback publication, which goes into great
detail about every census. There are also examples of every census
form right up to and including 2000.

There is a chart which details all the censuses with their National
Archive number, including the Soundex if there was one. The roll
numbers are also given.

It is published by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Economics and
Statistics Administration. This edition was published in September,
2002, and the publication number is POL/02-MA(RV). The ISBN is

An earlier edition (April, 2002) is also available as a downloadable
pdf document.
