The United States Constitution requires an enumeration of that nation’s population every ten years for the purpose of allocating representatives for the House of Representatives. The US federal government conducts other surveys based on the needs of the government to capture data. These federally conducted, but non-population, enumerations are called “schedules.” Some of these federal schedules enumerate individuals and therefore provide evidence, others provide contextual information, and some do both. Schedules covered include the Agriculture, Industry, Mortality, Community Information and the DDD or Dependents, Delinquents & Defectives Schedules. Learn how to use them in your research and writing.
