Re: 2020 US Census, post census thoughts #general

For me, it's been instructive to see occupations and education on old US
censuses -- data missing from all recent censuses. Most useful for me
has been the 1900 question that asked women how many children they had
had, and how many were still living

That said, I doubt future genealogists will have any trouble
reconstructing our lives. Given the amount of data collected on most of
us, supplemented by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc, our descendants
will have a record of what we did pretty much every day!
