Department of Commerce and Labor
Census directors Durand establishes a classification of the
compensation of census takers.
Washington, D.C.,
Janurary 22, 1910
The varying scales in different
parts of the country and the
d fferences in tho nature and
extent of the local difficulties
confronting the enumerators in
the largest grographical divis
ions of the United States have
influenced and guided United
States Census Director Durand
in the adoption of a classification
of enumerators' rates of com
pensation, within the limits
prescribed by the United States
Census law enacted by Congress
The different classes of rates
will brf so applied that in general
the average enumerator will
earn substantially the same
actual amount one distric
as in another, even though the
population may be much sparser
in one Minn in the otln r, with
other conditions also different.
Regards h paid to the fact that
prevailing wages and s-alaries
an higher in some parts of the
country than in others, but.
asidet frmthi-, the Director's
aim is 1 ajusr t he rates so as to
mi Ice the earnngsof enumcra
r.itors subitantially uniform
Where the per cipita rates
would not gixe sufficient pay,
the per dim rates are prescribed.
The rates in general will be so
ajusted as to give a slightly
higher average amount to the
enumerators than they receverl
in 1910. Per dem rates of pay
will be paid to the census enume
rators in the sparsely settled
rural districts of Arizona. Cal
ifornia, Colorado, Idaho, Mon
tana, Texas. Utah' Washington
and Wyoming
The rates will range from f 5
to $6 per day for the enumera
tion of the rural areas outside
of cities and towns Six dollars
is tho highest rate aulhorized
by law.
The Director realizes that in
many .Ustnets of the far We;t
it will be impossible to secure
competent men to act as e unie
rators 'at a rate of compensation
less than that being paid for
ordinary classes of work in the
same area. VVoro enumerators
in such districts paid only on
the per capita basis, their com -ligation
would be unreason
ably low.
The enumerators in the thinly
inhabited country sections of
North akota, South Dakota,
Nebraska, and Kansas, also
will be compenstend on a per
diem basis. Certain difficult ui
sparsley so tied enumeration
districts in other slates will be
included among lho.se to which
the per diem rates will apply, as
i ho conditions of the enumera
tion will be such that an enu
inerator could not make fair
earnings at any of the per capita
rates establishe. This announ
cement was made by Census
Director Durand to day, in order
to counteract, the deterrent
effect upon applications foremi
merators' places in the far Wst
and Southwest states of the
widely circulated and erroneous
st atement that per capita rates
of pay wore lobe given in the
par ley populated regions
Iii this connection the Director
was issut il to h censim super
vi.-wr a .ii't ;.le.l st.a emeur. of I In
oiissiheat ion ot rates adopted
for the compensation ef enumer
ators in the Thirteenth Census
commencing April 15 next
There are the general rates
the per capita, the mixed, and
the per diem. The riist and
second general rales liav tivt
subdivision each"
The per diem rates range from
$3 to $3,50, $4. $1.50, 15, 15.50,
and $G, and are to be paid for a
day of eight hours' work.
.tor enumerators on the per
capita basis, which will be that
most widly used, tho pay of
each inhabitant is. Class A.2
cents; class B, 2i cents; class C,
3 cents; class D. 3 cents; and
class E, i cents, Such enutne.1
ators will also bo paid for each
fai -m as follows class A, 20 cents
class B, 22$ cents; class O, 25
cents; class D, 27A cents; and
class E, 30 cents; These rates
are m each cane 5 cents or more
higher than those paid in 1900,
when tho range was from 15 to
20 cents For each establish
ment of productive industry the
rates for eac class is 30 cents;
For each barn and inclosipo
containing live stock, on farms
the pay is 10 ceMts for each clas s
Under the m red rate, which
is a co ibination of the per capita
and the per dit m, there are five
subclasses alphabetically arrran-
ged, and the por diem is: class F
1;.G,1.25;H; 1.50; I, $1.75

pay is: Class F, 2 cents; G, 2

and J, 3 cents- for each farm
Class F, 15 cents: O. 17$ cents;
11, 17$ cents; I and J, 20 cents
