Census form

Census form (blank) ( copy from 2006)

Images of the 1810 census might not include headers as indicated in the PDF blank form linked above. According to this form, the page was to have a row across the top for:

State | County | City | Call number

The remainder of the page was columnar (|| means a double vertical line):

Page | Head of Family | Free white males || Free white females || All others | Slaves | Remarks

The two "Free white" columns were subdivided into age range columns:

Under 10 | 10-16 | 16-26 | 26-45 | 45 and over

Most data recorded, then would be in the form of integers in the matrix, save for the name of the head of family.
