Census Schedules at UGA Libraries: Non-Population Schedules

Listing of the collections of historical Census schedules available at the UGA Libraries.

Information to be found in the non-population schedules

The agriculture census schedules list farms in each county. In addition to data on the livestock, crops, acreage, and value of the farm, the schedules give the name(s) of the owner, agent, or manager.

Similarly, the manufacturing census schedules provide details about the products and operations of manufacturing establishments as well as the name of the company or the name of the owner or manager.

The listings of agriculture and manufacturing establishments are grouped by county and district. 

For more detail as well as information about the availability of agriculture and manufacturing schedules by state see Nonpopulation Census Records of the National Archives and Records Administration.
