Abstract:

"This catalog lists the 1920 population schedules, reproduced as microfilm publication T625, and the 1920 Soundex indexes. This microfilm has been reproduced by the National Archives and Records Administration from the highest quality master negatives available from the Bureau of the Census. The original film includes defects that affect the legibility of some frames; the original schedules no longer exist.".

"On January 1, 1920, at 9:00 a.m., the Bureau of the Census began taking the fourteenth decennial census of the United States. The Department of Agriculture had requested that the date be changed from the traditional spring/early summer dates to January. The department argued that harvests would be completed and information about the harvests fresh in farmers' minds, and more people would be at home in January than in April.".

"Individuals were enumerated as residents of the place in which they regularly slept, not where they worked or might be visiting. People with no regular residence, including 'floaters' and members of transient railroad or construction camps, were enumerated as residents of the place where they were when the enumeration was taken. Enumerators were also to ask if any family members were temporarily absent; if so, these were to be listed with the household or on the last schedule for the census subdivision. Thus, the user should always check that page.".
