Z fUtzRATOR'S RATES OF PAI
0ensus Director Durand Establishel
a Cwsification of the Compen
sation of Census Takers.
Washington, D. C., Jan. 22, 1910
-The varying wage scales in differ
eat parts of the country and- the dif
ferences in the nature and extent o:
the local difficulties confronting th(
mnumerators in the larger geograph
ioal divisions of the United State
have influenced and guided Unite
Siates Census Director Durand i
'te adoption of a classification o,
enmerators' rates of . compensation
within the limits prescribed by th
United States Census law enacted b;
The different elasses of rates wil
be so applied that in, general the av
rage enumerator will earn substan
tially the same actual amount in on
district as in another, even thougl
the population may be much sparse
in one than in the other, with othe.
conditions also different. Regard i
paM& to the ~fact that prevailin,
wages are higher in some parts o:
I e country than in others, but, asid<
from this, the Direeto'r aim is t<
-adjust the rates s as to make thi
earnings of enumerators substantial
uniform. Where the per capiti
'mtes would not give, sufficient pay
*e per diem rates. are prescribed
'The rates in general will be so ad
justed at to give a slightfy highe
aTerage -amount to the enumerator
&an they received in 1900.
Per diem rates of pay will be pai<
to the census enumerators in th;
aparsely settled rural districts o:
Arizona, -California, Colorado, Idaho
Montana, Texas, Utah, Washingtoi
The rate will range from $5 to $1
per Iday for the enumeration of th<
rural areas outside of cities an
towns. Six dollars is the highes
rate authorized by law.
The Director realizes that in man:
' iets of the far West it will b<
possible to secure competent mei
to act as enumerators at a rate o
i9npanation less than that bein
paid for ordinary classes of work i
tW same area. Were enumerators i
eh distriets paid only on the pe
'ta basis, their compensatio
ould be unreasonably low.
The enumerators in the thinly in
ited country sections of Nort]
-ota, South Dakota, Nebraska an<
sas also will be compensated oi
per diem. basis. Certain difficult o
ly settled enumeration &i
ets in'.t'ber states will be include<
nig those to which the per diet
will apply, as the conditions o
enumeration will be such that a1
erator could not make fair earn
sat any of ,the per -eapita rate
This announcement was made b;
Census Director Durand to-day, i:
