U.S. Census

Texas State Historical Association

Carol Taylor, Hunt County Historical Commission chairman, says the 1920 U.S. census -- 100 years ago -- showed the nation to be changing in fundamental ways, as the majority of people were now living in cities.  The 2020 census is officially scheduled to end on Wednesday (Sept. 30).

Carol Taylor, chairman of the Hunt County Historical Commission, says the U.S. Census provides historians with a rich source of information on life in America.  Carol says the 1880 Census especially provided a bounty of information on communities and individuals.  But Carol says the 2020 Census asks so few questions that it will not be very useful to historians of the future.
