FEDERAL CENSUS POPULATION SCHEDULES
"Article I, section 2, of the U.S. Constitution requires that a
decennial population census, a nationwide enumeration or count of
the population, be taken every 10 years. Congress uses the
census figures to apportion seats in the House of Representatives.
The census also determines each state's number of votes in the
electoral college, which selects the President and Vice President;
and affects apportionment in state and local legislatures.
Section 9 provides that 'no capitation or other direct tax shall be
laid, unless in proportion to the census or Enumeration herein
before directed to be taken.'
The population schedules, first prepared in 1790, contain a
wealth of information for historians, economists, and other
researchers interested in topics such as Revolutionary War
pensioners, Civil War veterans, western expansion, regional and
local history, immigration, and naturalization.
To ensure the privacy of individuals, Congress has provided for a
72-year restriction to access of Federal census schedules. The
1920 census was released in 1992; the 1930 census [was] opened
