 About the 1880 US Census Records
The 1880 census was also the first to identify relationship to the head of household; illness or disability at the time the census was taken; marital status; number of months unemployed during the year; and the state or country of birth of every individual’s father and mother.
The census may be used to supplement birth or marriage records for the census year or even to partially replace them where vital records are not recorded elsewhere.
This is the first census to state relationship to the head of household, but the wife may not be the mother of the children.

 1840 US Census, Aroostook, Maine: transcriptions
The Sixth Census of the United States, undertaken in 1840, was a head of household census; that is, it recorded the name only of the heads of families; the rest of the information was recorded in terms of numbers of people within households, without names.
The census data is supposed to be as of June 1, 1840, the date on which census enumeration began; the census in Aroostook County seems to have been completed by the end of September 1840.
Once the enumeration was finished, "correct" copies of the completed census forms were "set up at two of the most public places within the Division, open to the inspection of all concerned," according to notes at the end of each division's pages, and one was sent to the US district court in the region.

 How Many Bicycle Commuters Are There in the USA? -- Data from US Census
Based on this data, the US Census estimates that there are between 411,000 and 750,000 people over the age of 16 who ride bicycles more miles than any other vehicle to get to work during an average week.
To be listed on the census as a bicycle commuter the cyclist has to be over 16, and the cyclist has to be going to work, not to school or on an errand.
In the US, figures based on the number of miles are preferred over those based on the number of trips or the number of days because mile-based figures make motor vehicle travel seem more important.

 Bill seeks to narrow US census count - The Boston Globe
WASHINGTON -- A Republican lawmaker yesterday proposed changing the US Constitution to exclude non-citizens from the census for the purpose of drawing congressional districts, a move that effectively would deny them a voice in US politics.
Under the present system, as determined by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, the Census Bureau counts all individuals living in the country, once every 10 years.
These data are used when drawing up the 435 congressional districts and when determining each state's vote in the Electoral College that decides presidential elections.

The Census Bureau is playing with numbers to hide growing poverty rates, suggests a new report published jointly by the non-partisan Economic Policy Institute (EPI) and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP).
In the past, the Census Bureau has used some of these more exacting NAS standards to create an unofficial poverty rate that it didn’t publicize, but it now has announced plans to drop this method of accounting altogether.
The Census Bureau Public Information Office refused to respond to an e-mail inquiry asking for an explanation for why it has chosen to use less accurate methods and inflated estimates to artificially reduce poverty rate.

The 2000 U.S. Census shows us that 49.7 million people in the U. age 5 and over have a disability -- nearly 1 in 5 U.S. residents, or 19 percent.
"If the Census were really exhaustive about measuring people who have difficulty with functions, the number of people with disabilities would, in fact, be much higher than it is," he continues.
The 2000 Census questions "are not ideal," says the Disability Statistics Center's Steven Kaye, "but they are better than those from the 1990 Census, and the Census is a better vehicle than the Survey of Income and Program Participation for getting accurate numbers.
