A census is the procedure of systematically acquiring and recording information about the members of a given population. The term is used mostly in connection with national population and housing censuses; other common censuses include agriculture, business, and traffic censuses. The United Nations defines the essential features of population and housing censuses as "individual enumeration, universality within a defined territory, simultaneity and defined periodicity", and recommends that population censuses be taken at least every 10 years. United Nations recommendations also cover census topics to be collected, official definitions, classifications and other useful information to co-ordinate international practice.[1][2]

The word is of Latin origin: during the Roman Republic, the census was a list that kept track of all adult males fit for military service. The modern census is essential to international comparisons of any kind of statistics, and censuses collect data on many attributes of a population, not just how many people there are. Censuses typically began as the only method of collecting national demographic data, and are now part of a larger system of different surveys. Although population estimates remain an important function of a census, including exactly the geographic distribution of the population, statistics can be produced about combinations of attributes e.g. education by age and sex in different regions. Current administrative data systems allow for other approaches to enumeration with the same level of detail but raise concerns about privacy and the possibility of biasing estimates.[3]

A census can be contrasted with sampling in which information is obtained only from a subset of a population; typically main population estimates are updated by such intercensal estimates. Modern census data are commonly used for research, business marketing, and planning, and as a baseline for designing sample surveys by providing a sampling frame such as an address register. Census counts are necessary to adjust samples to be representative of a population by weighting them as is common in opinion polling. Similarly, stratification requires knowledge of the relative sizes of different population strata which can be derived from census enumerations. In some countries, the census provides the official counts used to apportion the number of elected representatives to regions (sometimes controversially – e.g., Utah v. Evans). In many cases, a carefully chosen random sample can provide more accurate information than attempts to get a population census.[4]

  • 10/19/2018 : 2020 Census Quarterly Program Management Review (PMR)


My name is Connie Potter. I’m with the National Archives and Records Administration, and I’ll be talking about census records. I’m going to give a brief introduction. Then talk about the census records from 1790 until 1870, and then census records from 1880 until 1930. When working with census records, it’s important to remember a few things. One, this is oral history. No one had to provide information to verify that what they said was correct. And, because it’s oral information, frequently people mispronounce names. People didn’t spell the names correctly. Also, the census takers could have very bad handwriting, so you can’t always read the handwriting. You don’t always know who provided the information, and so the information may be inaccurate because a neighbor or a family member that wasn’t as familiar with everyone in the family might have provided the information. Also, the census reflects what happened the previous ten years, and we’ll see some examples of that as I go through the questions. And finally, not everyone was counted. The Constitution reads, “ Representatives and direct taxes shall be apportioned among the several states which may be included within this union according to their respective numbers which shall be determined by adding to the whole number of free persons including those bound to service for the term of years and excluding Indians not taxed, three-fifths of all other persons. The actual enumeration shall be made within three years of the first meeting of the Congress of the United States, and every subsequent term of ten years in such manner as they shall direct by law.” So, the first census was taken in August of 1790, and it’s been taken every ten years since then. The census is closed for 72 years after it is taken. And they are arranged by census year, state, then county, and, beginning in 1880, enumeration district. And we generally recommend that you start with the most recent census and work backwards, although I’m going to start with the first census and move forwards. Census records from 1790 until 1840 generally list just the head of the household, and they give statistical information on everyone else in the household. Now, the head of the household can include a man, a woman, or an African American if they are free and the head of a household. This example from the 1790 census shows the condition that some of the records were in when we received them. And the person on the second line is Samuel Adams. The person on the first line is John Hancock. Samuel Adams was one white, free male aged 16 and older and in his household was another free white male under 16. There were three free white females. There were no other people, and he held no slaves. This census took nine months to take. Later on, it was either two months or two weeks depending on whether the area counted was in the city or in the country. And, from 1790 until 1820, the marshals who took the census used whatever piece of paper they had on hand. There were no printed forms. So, using the early censuses can be a little difficult because you sometimes need to go back to the first page to figure out what the questions are and, if your ancestor’s on the fourth page, you don’t necessarily know what the questions are until you go back to the top of the page. In 1830, they finally printed the census schedules, but it was still a statistical summary. On line four is Samuel Yoder, and there are two males between ten and fifteen, one between fifteen and under twenty, and one male 30 and under 40. There’s one female under five, and then one female in each of the categories: five and under ten, fifteen and under twenty, twenty and under thirty. So, to use the records you need to know the ages of the people in the family. But what you can also look at are the other people in the neighborhood to see if there are other families that might have been related. So, you want to read the entire census page in these early censuses or, if not, the entire township or county. Beginning in 1850, they list everyone in the household, but they don’t give you their relationship. In 1850 and 1860, there are separate free and slave schedules. This is the 1870 Census for Prescott, Arizona, and you get the name of the person, their age, sex and race, their occupation, and where they were born. The final question reflects what went on in the previous decade. This is the 1870 census, and it refers back to the Civil War. The last column, it asks if you are a male 21 years of age or over, and have you been denied the right to vote on other than a crime or the late rebellion. This is referring to the men who received the right to vote under the Fifteenth Amendment where you could vote regardless of race, color, or previous condition of servitude. Women could not vote, so this refers to the black men who were slaves who were freed under the Fifteenth Amendment after the Civil War. This a slave schedule from Maryland in 1850. The slave schedules rarely rarely give the name of the slave. It usually gives the name of the slave owner or the person who was working with the slave. Now, this one isn’t particularly difficult. If you knew your family member, for example, had been owned by Mrs. Pierce, there are only four slaves listed. But, on some of the slave schedules that can go on for page and page and page. Jefferson Davis in Mississippi had many pages of slaves, and it’s would be almost impossible to determine using these records if your ancestor was a slave for Jefferson Davis. Beginning in 1880, they list the relationship to the head of the household. It also, starting in 1900, provides citizenship information; the year of immigration, naturalization status whether naturalized N-A, whether they filed their first papers P-A, or they were an alien A-L. And, in 1920, it gives the year of naturalization. The records are also arranged by enumeration districts, and those are areas within the county that an enumerator could cover in either two weeks or one month depending on whether they’re in the city or the country. Also, in 1880, for the first time, in cities only, it lists the name of the street and the house number. So, you can get the address beginning in 1880. 1880 census for the first and only time asks health questions. They use phrases that we might not use now, but they ask if you’re deaf and dumb, an idiot, insane, maimed, crippled, or disabled. And some of the examples they use, not examples but some of diseases they put down may not be familiar to you, but just get on the internet and search for a medical dictionary, and you can frequently get the answer that way. On line 15, you’ll see Andrew Davis is a white male age 70. He’s a ship carpenter born in Maine, and his father and mother are both born in Maine. So, you know at least for that time you don’t need to look at immigration records. The other people in the household are Mary, a daughter, age 41, a teacher, and Lucinda also a sister keeps house. The 1890 census was destroyed as a result of a fire in the Department of Commerce, but part of the 1890 veterans’ census survives. The states from Alabama through Kansas are missing. We just have Kentucky through Wyoming and, fortunately, Washington, DC is listed under Washington, DC and not District of Columbia. And, this will give the name of the soldier, what unit he was in, what his health problems were…Now, the census is surviving soldiers, sailors, marines, and widows of the Union. However, fortunately, people don’t always follow directions, so you can find information as far back as the War of 1812 and the Mexican-American War, and Confederate soldiers. This is the 1930 census. The most recent census that’s available. This one gives you, for the first time, how much do you pay for rent, do you rent or did you buy your house and, if so, for how much? Do you have a radio? It gives the place of birth of not only the person but the father and the mother, and this started in 1880. It also asks if you’re a veteran of any wars, and they ask that frequently on the census records. And, in 1930, they give both the occupation and the industry. And President Hoover, his occupation is President of the United States, but his industry is federal employee. These records are available on microfilm at the National Archives building in Washington, DC, and in some of the regional facilities, but you need to check with each facility to see what they have, if it’s onsite, how you can get a hold of it. They’re online at, Footnote, which is a partial list, HeritageQuest, and these are available at National Archives facilities free of charge although they are subscription-based online services. And mail-order for a fee, and you can get information at “order online” at



A census is often construed as the opposite of a sample as its intent is to count everyone in a population rather than a fraction. However, population censuses rely on a sampling frame to count the population. This is the only way to be sure that everyone has been included as otherwise those not responding would not be followed up on and individuals could be missed. The fundamental premise of a census is that the population is not known and a new estimate is to be made by the analysis of primary data. The use of a sampling frame is counterintuitive as it suggests that the population size is already known. However, a census is also used to collect attribute data on the individuals in the nation. This process of sampling marks the difference between historical census, which was a house to house process or the product of an imperial decree, and the modern statistical project. The sampling frame used by census is almost always an address register. Thus it is not known if there is anyone resident or how many people there are in each household. Depending on the mode of enumeration, a form is sent to the householder, an enumerator calls, or administrative records for the dwelling are accessed. As a preliminary to the dispatch of forms, census workers will check any address problems on the ground. While it may seem straightforward to use the postal service file for this purpose, this can be out of date and some dwellings may contain a number of independent households. A particular problem is what are termed 'communal establishments' which category includes student residences, religious orders, homes for the elderly, people in prisons etc. As these are not easily enumerated by a single householder, they are often treated differently and visited by special teams of census workers to ensure they are classified appropriately.

Residence definitions

Individuals are normally counted within households and information is typically collected about the household structure and the housing. For this reason international documents refer to censuses of population and housing. Normally the census response is made by a household, indicating details of individuals resident there. An important aspect of census enumerations is determining which individuals can be counted from which cannot be counted. Broadly, three definitions can be used: de facto residence; de jure residence; and, permanent residence. This is important to consider individuals who have multiple or temporary addresses. Every person should be identified uniquely as resident in one place but where they happen to be on Census Day, their de facto residence, may not be the best place to count them. Where an individual uses services may be more useful and this is at their usual, or de jure, residence. An individual may be represented at a permanent address, perhaps a family home for students or long term migrants. It is necessary to have a precise definition of residence to decide whether visitors to a country should be included in the population count. This is becoming more important as students travel abroad for education for a period of several years. Other groups causing problems of enumeration are new born babies, refugees, people away on holiday, people moving home around census day, and people without a fixed address. People having second homes because of working in another part of the country or retaining a holiday cottage are difficult to fix at a particular address sometimes causing double counting or houses being mistakenly identified as vacant. Another problem is where people use a different address at different times e.g. students living at their place of education in term time but returning to a family home during vacations or children whose parents have separated who effectively have two family homes. Census enumeration has always been based on finding people where they live as there is no systematic alternative - any list you could use to find people is derived from census activities in the first place. Recent UN guidelines provide recommendation on enumerating such complex households.[5]

Enumeration strategies

Historical censuses used crude enumeration assuming absolute accuracy. Modern approaches take into account the problems of overcount and undercount, and the coherence of census enumerations with other official sources of data.[6] This reflects a realist approach to measurement, acknowledging that under any definition of residence there is a true value of the population but this can never be measured with complete accuracy. An important aspect of the census process is to evaluate the quality of the data.[7]

Many countries use a post-enumeration survey to adjust the raw census counts.[8] This works in a similar manner to capture-recapture estimation for animal populations. In census circles this method is called dual system enumeration (DSE). A sample of households are visited by interviewers who record the details of the household as at census day. These data are then matched to census records and the number of people missed can be estimated by considering the number missed in the census or survey but counted in the other. This way counts can be adjusted for non-response varying between different demographic groups. An explanation using a fishing analogy can be found in "Trout, Catfish and Roach..."[9] which won an award from the Royal Statistical Society for excellence in official statistics in 2011.

Triple system enumeration has been proposed as an improvement as it would allow evaluation of the statistical dependence of pairs of sources. However, as the matching process is the most difficult aspect of census estimation this has never been implemented for a national enumeration. It would also be difficult to identify three different sources that were sufficiently different to make the triple system effort worthwhile. The DSE approach has another weakness in that it assumes there is no person counted twice (over count). In de facto residence definitions this would not be a problem but in de jure definitions individuals risk being recorded on more than one form leading to double counting. A particular problem here are students who often have a term time and family address.

Several countries have used a system which is known as short form/long form.[10] This is a sampling strategy which randomly chooses a proportion of people to send a more detailed questionnaire to (the long form). Everyone receives the short form questions. Thereby more data are collected but not imposing a burden on the whole population. This also reduces the burden on the statistical office. Indeed, in the UK all residents were required to fill in the whole form but only a 10% sample were coded and analysed in detail, until 2001.[11] New technology means that all data are now scanned and processed. Recently there has been controversy in Canada about the cessation of the long form with the head, Munir Sheikh resigning.[12]

The use of alternative enumeration strategies is increasing[13] but these are not so simple as many people assume and only occur in developed countries.[14] The Netherlands has been most advanced in adopting a census using administrative data. This allows a simulated census to be conducted by linking several different administrative databases at an agreed time. Data can be matched and an overall enumeration established accounting for where the different sources are discrepant. A validation survey is still conducted in a similar way to the post enumeration survey employed in a traditional census. Other countries which have a population register use this as a basis for all the census statistics needed by users. This is most common among Nordic countries but requires a large number of different registers to be combined including population, housing, employment and education. These registers are then combined and brought up to the standard of a statistical register by comparing the data in different sources and ensuring the quality is sufficient for official statistics to be produced.[15] A recent innovation is the French instigation of a rolling census programme with different regions enumerated each year such that the whole country is completely enumerated every 5 to 10 years.[16] In Europe, in connection with the 2010 census round, a large number of countries adopted alternative census methodologies, often based on the combination of data from registers, surveys and other sources.[17]


Censuses have evolved in their use of technology with the latest censuses, the 2010 round, using many new types of computing. In Brazil, handheld devices were used by enumerators to locate residences on the ground. In many countries, census returns could be made via the Internet as well as in paper form. DSE is facilitated by computer matching techniques which can be automated, such as propensity score matching. In the UK, all census formats are scanned and stored electronically before being destroyed, replacing the need for physical archives. The record linking to perform an administrative census would not be possible without large databases being stored on computer systems.

New technology is not without problems in its introduction. The US census had intended to use the handheld computers but cost escalated and this was abandoned, with the contract being sold to Brazil. Online response is a good idea but one of the functions of census is to make sure everyone is counted accurately. A system which allowed people to enter their address without verification would be open to abuse. Therefore, households have to be verified on the ground, typically by an enumerator visit or post out. Paper forms are still necessary for those without access to Internet connections. It is also possible that the hidden nature of an administrative census means that users are not engaged with the importance of contributing their data to official statistics.

Alternatively, population estimations may be carried out remotely with GIS and remote sensing technologies.[18]

Census and development

According to UNFPA, "The information generated by a population and housing census – numbers of people, their distribution, their living conditions and other key data – is critical for development." [19] This is because this type of data is essential for policymakers so that they know where to invest. Unfortunately, many countries have outdated or inaccurate data about their populations and therefore, without accurate data are unable to address the needs of their population.

UNFPA stated that,[19]

"The unique advantage of the census is that it represents the entire statistical universe, down to the smallest geographical units, of a country or region. Planners need this information for all kinds of development work, including: assessing demographic trends; analysing socio-economic conditions;[20] designing evidence-based poverty-reduction strategies; monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of policies; and tracking progress toward national and internationally agreed development goals."

In addition to making policymakers aware about population issues, it is also an important tool for identifying forms of social, demographic or economic exclusions, such as inequalities relating to race, ethics and religion as well as disadvantaged groups such as those with disabilities and the poor.

An accurate census can empower local communities by providing them with the necessary information to participate in local decision-making and ensuring they are represented.

Uses of census data

In the nineteenth century, the first censuses collected paper enumerations that had to be collated by hand so the statistical uses were very basic. The government owned the data and were able to publish statistics themselves on the state of the nation.[21] Uses were to measure changes in the population and apportion representation. Population estimates could be compared to those of other countries.

By the beginning of the twentieth century, censuses were recording households and some indications of their employment. In some countries, census archives are released for public examination after many decades, allowing genealogists to track the ancestry of interested people. Archives provide a substantial historical record which may challenge established notions of tradition. It is also possible to understand the societal history through job titles and arrangements for the destitute and sick.

There are a lot of politics that surround the census in many countries. In Canada in 2010 for example, the government under the leadership of Stephen Harper abolished the mandatory long-form census. The decision to cut the long-form census was a response to protests from some Canadians who resented the personal questions.[22] The long-form census was reinstated by the Justin Trudeau government in 2016.

Census data and research

As governments assumed responsibility for schooling and welfare, large government research departments made extensive use of census data. Actuarial estimates could be made to project populations and plan for provision in local government and regions. It was also possible for central government to allocate funding on the basis of census data. Even into the mid twentieth century, census data was only directly accessible to large government departments. However, computers meant that tabulations could be used directly by university researchers, large businesses and local government offices. They could use the detail of the data to answer new questions and add to local and specialist knowledge.

Now, census data are published in a wide variety of formats to be accessible to business, all levels of governance, media, students and teachers, charities and any citizen who is interested; researchers in particular have an interest in the role of Census Field Officers (CFO) and their assistants.[23] Data can be represented visually or analysed in complex statistical models, to show the difference between certain areas, or to understand the association between different personal characteristics. Census data offer a unique insight into small areas and small demographic groups which sample data would be unable to capture with precision.


Although the census provides a useful way of obtaining statistical information about a population, such information can sometimes lead to abuses, political or otherwise, made possible by the linking of individuals' identities to anonymous census data.[24] This consideration is particularly important when individuals' census responses are made available in microdata form, but even aggregate-level data can result in privacy breaches when dealing with small areas and/or rare subpopulations.

For instance, when reporting data from a large city, it might be appropriate to give the average income for black males aged between 50 and 60. However, doing this for a town that only has two black males in this age group would be a breach of privacy because either of those persons, knowing his own income and the reported average, could determine the other man's income.

Typically, census data are processed to obscure such individual information. Some agencies do this by intentionally introducing small statistical errors to prevent the identification of individuals in marginal populations;[25] others swap variables for similar respondents. Whatever measures have been taken to reduce the privacy risk in census data, new technology in the form of better electronic analysis of data poses increasing challenges to the protection of sensitive individual information. This is known as statistical disclosure control.

Another possibility is to present survey results by means of statistical models in the form of a multivariate distribution mixture.[26] The statistical information in the form of conditional distributions (histograms) can be derived interactively from the estimated mixture model without any further access to the original database. As the final product does not contain any protected microdata, the model based interactive software can be distributed without any confidentiality concerns.

Another method is simply to release no data at all, except very large scale data directly to the central government. Different release strategies between government have led to an international project (IPUMS) to co-ordinate access to microdata and corresponding metadata. Such projects also promote standardising metadata by projects such as SDMX so that best use can be made of the minimal data available.

Historical censuses


Censuses in Egypt first appear in the late Middle Kingdom and develops in the New Kingdom[27] Pharaoh Amasis, according to Herodotus, require every Egyptian to declare annually to the nomarch, "whence he gained his living".[28] Under the Ptolemies and the Romans several censuses were conducted in Egypt by governments officials [29]

Ancient Greece

There are several accounts of ancient Greek city states carrying out censuses.[30]


Censuses are mentioned in the Bible. God commands a per capita tax to be paid with the census in Exodus 30:11-16 for the upkeep of the Tabernacle. The Book of Numbers is named after the counting of the Israelite population (in Numbers 1-4) according to the house of the Fathers after the exodus from Egypt. A second census was taken while the Israelites were camped in the plains of Moab, in Numbers 26.

King David performed a census that produced disastrous results (in 2 Samuel 24 and 1 Chronicles 21). His son, King Solomon, had all of the foreigners in Israel counted in 2 Chronicles 2:17.

When the Romans took over Judea in AD 6, the legate Publius Sulpicius Quirinius organised a census for tax purposes. The Gospel of Luke links the birth of Jesus to this event. Luke 2.


One of the world's earliest preserved censuses[31] was held in China in AD 2 during the Han Dynasty, and is still considered by scholars to be quite accurate.[32][33][34][35] Another census was held in AD 144.


The oldest recorded census in India is thought to have occurred around 300 BC during the reign of The Emperor Chandragupta Maurya under the leadership of Kautilya or Chanakya and Ashoka.[36]


The word "census" originated in ancient Rome from the Latin word censere ("to estimate"). The census played a crucial role in the administration of the Roman Empire, as it was used to determine taxes. With few interruptions, it was usually carried out every five years.[37] It provided a register of citizens and their property from which their duties and privileges could be listed. It is said to have been instituted by the Roman king Servius Tullius in the 6th century BC,[38] at which time the number of arms-bearing citizens was supposedly counted at around 80,000.[39] The 6 AD "census of Quirinius" undertaken following the imposition of direct Roman rule in Judea was partially responsible for the development of the Zealot movement and several failed rebellions against Rome that ended in the Diaspora. The 15-year indiction cycle established by Diocletian in AD 297 was based on quindecennial censuses and formed the basis for dating in late antiquity and under the Byzantine Empire.

Rashidun and Umayyad Caliphates

In the Middle Ages, the Caliphate began conducting regular censuses soon after its formation, beginning with the one ordered by the second Rashidun caliph, Umar.[40]

Medieval Europe

The Domesday Book was undertaken in AD 1086 by William I of England so that he could properly tax the land he had recently conquered in medieval Europe. In 1183, a census was taken of the crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem, to ascertain the number of men and amount of money that could possibly be raised against an invasion by Saladin, sultan of Egypt and Syria.

Inca Empire

In the 15th century, the Inca Empire had a unique way to record census information. The Incas did not have any written language but recorded information collected during censuses and other numeric information as well as non-numeric data on quipus, strings from llama or alpaca hair or cotton cords with numeric and other values encoded by knots in a base-10 positional system.

Spanish Empire

On May 25, 1577, King Philip II of Spain ordered by royal cédula the preparation of a general description of Spain's holdings in the Indies. Instructions and a questionnaire, issued in 1577 by the Office of the Cronista Mayor, were distributed to local officials in the Viceroyalties of New Spain and Peru to direct the gathering of information. The questionnaire, composed of fifty items, was designed to elicit basic information about the nature of the land and the life of its peoples. The replies, known as "relaciones geográficas," were written between 1579 and 1585 and were returned to the Cronista Mayor in Spain by the Council of the Indies.

World population estimates

The earliest estimate of the world population was made by Giovanni Battista Riccioli in 1661; the next by Johann Peter Süssmilch in 1741, revised in 1762; the third by Karl Friedrich Wilhelm Dieterici in 1859.[41]

In 1931, Walter Willcox published a table in his book, International Migrations: Volume II Interpretations, that estimated the 1929 world population to be roughly 1.8 billion.

Modern implementation

Nigerian leaders cannot put a number on the amount of Nigerian women and girls that have gone missing. Nigeria has never had a credible, successful census. —Olúfémi Táíwò, professor of Africana studies at Cornell University[42]
