ARE NOT TRUE RECORD Abnormal Condition* fn After War Period Caused Anomalies—Gov •ramtoi and Business Otpend (Nkieh on Statistic*. Washington, D. C.—With the popu lation of il»e country counted nose for nose and the census of 19-0 virtually completed it looks as though congress would have to dig down Into the pock ets ot" the treasury for $20,000,000 more to rcpeut the operation in 1025. it took $23,fi»0,0u0 to take the four teenth decennial census, the census that started three years ago, the to tals of which are now being compiled. The fifteenth census will probably have to drop the term decennial, for It now appears that It will have to be started within the next year or two if the country is to have any reliable statistics, and If this is the case it will be the first break in the long line of 'stock takings" l.'tjcle Sam has In dulged in every ten years since 1790. The truth about the 19-0 census is that for this year, last year and next year Its figures are Invaluable, but for the retimlnlng eight years intervening between this and the next census, ex perts declare, its figures will he worth little more than their own historical and Intrinsic phenomenal value. That is to say, they cannot be used for the yeitr to year computations that the government and the industries of the country are accustomed to making. The fourteenth decennial census was taken on the regular periodic occasion set aside since 1790 for taking the na tional census. In 1820 that proved for the first time to be an unfortunate and Hot propitious occasion. Uf course It was the wur that was to blame. For the six years previous to 1920 Im migration had not only beon restricted because of the war In Eucope, but an unusual number of our recent Immi grants returned to their native homes and armies to take part In the war. Upward Swing In All Lines. Added to tills, industrial conditions «arly became upset In this country. Our munitions and Industrial plants took on gigantic and actually gro tesque capacities and they were flood ed abnormally with labor. Even the per capita wealth of the country swung well over toward the golden era during this period. The contrast of unemployment, di minishing wealth of the mass of the people, shutdown of mills and the turning flood of Immigration witnessed during the last six months Is the best example of how useless the figures taken In 10»0 will be a year or two from now. Yet even this condition will not be permanent. In a year or two the country hopes to be back to Its normal stride. The figures of the last few years will furnish a splendid concrete ex ample for the future of what to ex pect In times of great social upheav als. such as the World war, but sta tistics that are to serve the country as a normal guide for Its legislative and business activities in times of peuce must be taken in the normal days of peaco. The great bulk of the present cen sus hus been completed. The census bureau has already published the to tal population of the United States, there being 100,708,771 souls account ed for throughout the United States. This represents an Increase of 13,786, 50T inhabitants, or 14.9 per cent in crease of population since 1910. It has even moved the Imaginary point representing the "center of popula tion" t'rom Hloomlngton, Ind., to a point 9.8 miles west aud about one fifth of a tulle north, where It is now fixed In the little town of Spencer, Ind. Little Work Yet to Be Done. All that remains to be done is the computation of the statistics In hand for various special (lata, the totalling of data by states and minor subdivis ions and the publication of the census abstract and finally the census report for 1924. This will complete the "Job" and will probably be done by the end of the year. Then it is probable that Instead of settling down to its minor lnterdecennial census, It will be In structed by congress to get Itself, ready for three years more of natlonul "stocktaking." More than 100,000 persons were em ployed in taking the present census. In all, congress appropriated S2S..VJ0. ooO for the three years of work. The period covered In taking the census was from July 1, 191$ to June 30. 1921. In I'M# and 1919, when congress was appealed to for funds for the work the members were warned that the results would probably be unsat isfactory and that another census might be necessary almost immedi ately. So Important was the census considered, however, that congress de elded to take it at the regular time set aside for It and then. If necessary. Uike a following census. Importance of the Census. Unless one studies the reports of the census figures he does not realize how Important it is for Uncle Sam to count noses, first of all for reason* of government and, secondly for the harmonizing of our industrial and so- ffclrly accurate figures of actual and Jot«»ntlal wealth throughout ths coun try, which la Invaluable for tax Is i u&L nu. "yir^ "t Qffycfi j*!"1" pur- i ones. Consider tho plight the staff at tft* arm? would have been in during the war, as well as the rest of the coun try, If It could not estimate either the source of human or material supplies. All the statistics of the government, «f labor and of business all figures Used by insurance "mpanles, banking •md agricultural statistics would be vague guesses without the comprehen sive and aproximately accurate ten year tally made by the government as a t-uaU from which to compute. When the government started com piling census figures in 1790 the work of enumerating the populace was In trusted to 17 United States marshals, and the actual enumeration was done by 050 marshals' assistants. The fig ures compiled were sent to the Pres ident, who turned them over to the secretary of state. In turn they were transmitted to the printer and printed In an octavo volume of 56 pages. There Is a striking contrast between the first census report in a book of 56 pages 8 by 5 Inches in size and the hundred or more volumes In juar to (12 by 9 Inches) of approximately 40,000 pages published as a result of the 1910 census. The first census taking was fraught with hardships. thA enumerators mak ing Journeys over unimproved roads In stages and on horseback. In fact, some smaller communities were con sidered too isolated to visit. Among these were Detroit, and Vlncennes, Ind. Western New York was a wil derness at that time, Elmira and Blng hamton being only detached hamlets. The chief data taken for the first census related to the heads of fam IMcs and other data were considered as related to these family heads. Phil adelphia was the capital at the time This census showed the great metrop olis of New York with a population In those days of 33.000 Inhabitants. Even then It was the largest city in the United States. But the state of New York ranked a poor fourth in population in comparison with Vir ginia, Pennsylvania and Massachu setts. U. S. Had 3,893,635. in 179a The total population of the United States in 1790 was registered as 3,993, 635 persons. For 1920 the census fig ures show a total population of 105, 708,771, or a percentage Increase In 130 years of 3,500 per cent. To ex pect the same relative increase in the next 130 years would give us a popu lation In the year 2050 of something In excess of three and a half billions. But getting down to earth, it is rather easy to calculate from past his tory what the population mark will be In normal or similar conditions In ten, twenty or thirty years. The big difficulty that the last decade haa been too abnormal to use It as a basis for calculation. In 1900 our population was 75,99 575. In 1910 It Jumped 15,977,691. or 21 per cent, over this figure to 91.972, 268, and In 1920 It had Jumped 13.736. 505 more, or 14 9 per cent to a total of more than loo,'**!,!**) Among othor things the period from 1900 to 1919 was a good one for Immigration. The 1910 to 1920 decade was decidedly otherwise, and Its percentage of In crease was the lowest in history. The coming decade, from now unlU i:«JO, expected to be an unusual Im migration period. With our natives Increasing by births In addition to prospective Immigration, if congress puts no bar In the way, the Increase in the next decade should approach between 20 and 25 per cent of our present, and a total of 130,000,000 people in 1909 is not considered by statisticians of the census bureau to be too wide. From the growth of the country in the last hundred years it Is easy to appreciate the growth In the slxe of the Job undertaken each ten years by the census bureau. Gradually the work of enumerating the population and the facts concerning them lias been reduced to mechanical processes. From the days of horseback travel in 1790 the census taking has gone through an evolution in respect to size, methods and matter. At first only Individuals were counted and later Information concerning the fam ily was gnthered. It was not until 1850 that Information concerning agri culture. Industry, religion, literacy, schooling, occupations, Quarries and mines and the like were noted. The census of 1850 was called the "modern census" for a number of years following. In 1870 machine tabulation was Introduced and later came the more rapid electrical ma chine tabulation. By 1880 150 super visors and 31,382 enumerators were engaged In taking the census. Today there are almost three times that num ber of enumerators. In addition, the census bureau talna various special censuses, such as a Census of the fisheries, central electric stations, schooling, religion and has even got down to taking a census ot drainage conditions In agricultural areas. To do this work it einpiofs many special agents skilled In that line of work. The most modern feature of the cen sus Is its card Indexing and tabulat ing work. The census bureau has de signed Its own tabulating card. This card registers the section of the Country In which a person lives, wheth er a male or female, age, nativity, oc cupation, whether employed or unem ployed. what language he speak* whether a naturalized citizen by birth or alien and similar data respecting his parents. The cost of taking the census la 1920 amounted only to about 21 cento per capita for all the people la the United States, VI \l»IS()N TESTIMONY. Home Proof, here, There asd Every where.
