TAKING THE CENSUS IS A BIG JOB
Washington, Sept. 11. About 65,000
enumerators will be needed for the
13th decennial census of the United
States, and also of Hawaii and Porto
Rico, according to estimates prepared
for Census Director Durand by Geog
rapher Charles S. Sloane of the cen
sus bureau, in whose division the
enumerators' districts are defined and
fixed. This is an increase of about
11,000 over the number of schedule
carriers in the census of 1900.
Director Durand points out that the
per diem enumerators in 1900, accord
ing to the provisions of section 16 of
the act approved March 3, 1S99, were
required to work 10 hours a day, hut,
in Ihe act providing for the 13th and
subsequent decennial censuses, the
time is fixed at eight hours a day.
This reduction in the daily hours will
require an additional number of enu
merators in the portions of the coun
try in which the per diem rate will
Thirty Daya to Forward Keturnn.
The present census law requires that
the enumeration of the population
shall be taken as of the 15th day of
April. 1910, and the enumerators must
forward their returns to the ! super
visors within 30 days from the com
mencement of the enumeration, except
that in any city haying 5.000 inhabi
tants or more at the" preceding census.
the enumeration shall be completed
within two weeks.
In looking into the details of the es
timates, Oklahoma and Washington
are conspicuous, as they will call for
about a 300 per cent increase over the
1900 force of enumerators.
Pennsylvania will continue in the
leadership, having slightly the largest
number of enumerators, the 1910 force
being estimated at 5,200. against 4.720"
in 1900. New York is second with 'a
probable 5,000 for 1910,. as compared
with 4,541 in 1900. Next will come
Illinois, then Ohio, Texas. Missouri,
Massachusetts, Indiana. Michigan, Min
nesota and California, all needing 2,
000 or more enumerators each.
More People Increased Force.
Noteworthy increases in population
will in 1910 occasion about a 50 per
cent increase over the 1900 force in
California, Florida, Georgia, Massa
chusetts, Montana, Nevada. New Jer
sey. New Mexico, North Dakota, Texas,
West Virginia and Wyoming.
There will very likely be no mater
ial increase in the number of enumer
ators for Vermont and only a small
additional force for Arkansas, Iowa,
Maine, Oregon, Rhode Island. South
Dakota and Tennessee. The force of
enumerators in Illinois will be increas
ed from 3.409 to 3.900. Cook county
alone will require above 1.500 enumer
