United States Census 1910
The 1910 United States Census was the thirteenth census in the United States since 1790 . As a result of the count, a population of 92,228,496 inhabitants was determined for the USA on April 15, 1910. Compared to the 1900 census, the population had grown by 21 percent.
The data contain information on the name, home address, relationship to the head of the family, gender (for women, number of born and living children), race, age, civil status (possibly years of marriage), place of birth, mother tongue and mother tongue of the parents, in the case of a migration background: year of immigration, Language skills, occupation and industry (possibly unemployment), reading skills, school attendance, information about the apartment, whether rented or owned, whether a farm or house, veteran status (Confederate or Union Army or Navy), disability (blind, deaf or deaf).
The data are stored as microfiche and can still be evaluated for scientific analyzes today.
The state population figures from the 10-year United States censuses are key to determining the number of representatives from those states in the United States House of Representatives . The adjustment is usually made in the next but one Congress after a census. Since the Congress could not agree on an adjustment of the MPs after the census of 1920, the numbers of the census from 1910 to March 4, 1933 remained the basis of the number of MPs from the individual states.
