1900 U.S. Federal Census Records The 1900 census was begun on 1 June 1900. The
enumeration was to be completed within thirty days, or two weeks for
communities with populations of more than ten thousand.
The 1900 population schedules provide the name of each person in the
household; address; relationship to the head of the household; color
or race; sex; month and year of birth; age at last birthday; marital
status; the number of years married; the total number of children
born of the mother; the number of those children living; places of
birth of each individual and the parents of each individual; if the
individual was foreign born, the year of immigration and the number
of years in the United States; the citizenship status of foreign-born
individuals over age twenty-one; occupation; whether the person could
read, write, and speak English; whether the home was owned or rented;
whether the home was on a farm; and whether the home was mortgaged.
The 1900 census is the only available census that provides columns
for including the exact month and year of birth of every person enumerated.
Previous censuses, and even the 1910 and 1920 censuses, include only
the ages. The 1900 census is also the only census to include space
to record the number of years couples were married, the number of
children born to the mother, and how many were still living. This
census was also the first to indicate how long an immigrant had been
in the country and whether naturalized; whether a home or farm was
owned or rented and whether the owned property was free of mortgage.
