Detailed Description

This volume updates the author's earlier work, A Clearer Sense of the Census (1996), to include material relating to the 1901 census returns (available online at The National Archives), and to the pre-1841 censuses. It includes details of the structure and geography of the census, and has comprehensive information on the houses, households, individuals and occupations that appear in the returns. There are also chapters on using the censuses, the skills required (and how you get them), and the various reference tools and finding aids available, online and in print. This is an invaluable guide to an important source for the history of the nineteenth century.
