Non-Population Census Schedules


Every genealogist works with federal census population schedules. Our work with them is so common that we generally don’t even bother to specify that they’re population schedules. They’re just “the census.”

Far fewer of us make full use of the federal censuses. We know, at least in theory, that there are other schedules out there, but how useful are they really? Useful enough to go through the trouble of getting to them? And what exactly can they tell us?

This month we take a closer look at non-population schedules, specifically these five:

  • Agricultural Schedules
  • Manufacturing Schedules
  • Mortality Schedules
  • Social Statistics Schedules
  • Business Schedules
