Kathy is correct.  My old eyes were missing the obvious in the 1820  
census.  But, like Kathy, I don't see it in 1830 (the first year with  printed 
forms).  Thank you, Kathy.

Jay,

Follow the particular household across all the  columns.
For example, in 1820 after the male/female age columns, there are  the 
following columns for each household:
Foreigners not  naturalized
Number of persons engaged in Agriculture
Number of persons  engaged in Commerce
Number of persons engaged in Manufactures

Then  come the columns for male and female slaves and their age range
Then the  columns for Free Colored Persons males and females and their age 
ranges
And  finally the column "All other persons except Indians not  taxed

I'm confused, and hoping someone can help.  Hinckley and others  say that 
the 1820 and 1830 censuses collected information on the number of  people 
within each household engaged in agriculture, commerce or  manufacturing.  I 
know that the 1820 and 1830 censuses gathered  aggregate statistics (of not 
particularly good quality), and the 1840 census  expanded the count to other 
industries, but I have never seen counts within  families.  Am I missing 
something?
