[APG Public List] Occupation in Census

On page 83 of my census book (Your Guide to the Federal Census) I describe
the 1810 and 1820 manufacturers schedules; I do not indicate that 1830 had
schedules.  These special schedules are separate from the population
schedule.  On page 84-85 of my book, I list where the originals are located
for each state; and on page 83 I reports that the manufacturing census
including the owner's name, location of establishment, number of employees,
kind and quantity of machinery, and capital invested.
Also, on page 243 of my book, the questions asked on the 1820 population
schedule did include number of persons engaged in agriculture, commerce, or
manufactures for each line item.

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
