Jay, pull p. 3 of our IGHR syllabus material for census records. You'll find
there a table showing the years that cover ag, manufacturing, industrial,
social, etc.  1830 has none of those details. 1820 and 1840 do, in varying
combinations.

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?
