CensusesHome / About Stanton / History / Censuses

Censuses were carried out every 10 years to keep track of the country’s population. Census records indicate where someone lived, their name, gender, age on the date of the census, occupation and birthplace. The records also show with whom the person was living or visiting on the night of the census.

From 1851 the person's relationship to the head of the household and marital status and birthplace are also shown.
