to my question, I telephoned the Census Bureau. The individual with whom I
spoke told me she would contact the "History" staff. She came back and
informed me that she was told that the 1940 Census Housing Schedule was

was not filled out for every household -- only a sampling.
I did receive an e-mail reply >from an individual who stated that he thought
the Housing schedule was completed on only 5% of households.
