Abstract:

Making Sense of the Census Revisited is a key reference work for all those approaching census studies. It Includes details of the structure and geography of the census, and has comprehensive information on the houses, households, individuals and occupations that appear in the census returns. There are also chapters on using the censuses, the skills required (and how you acquire them), and the various reference tools and finding-aids available, online and in print. This volume updates the author's earlier work, A Clearer Sense of the Census, to include material relating to the recently released 1901 census returns (available online at www.1901census.nationalarchives.gov.uk), and to the pre-1841 censuses. This is an invaluable guide to an important source for the social, cultural, demographic, political and economic history of England and Wales in the nineteenth century.
