Description
  • Abstract

    Social and demographic characteristics of over 23,000 families living in Indiana in 1820 are contained in this dataset. These data were obtained from the manuscript schedules of the 1820 United States Census. They were initially recorded on punch cards by the Geneological Section of the Indiana Historical Society, the cards were donated to John Modell, at the University of Minnesota, who corrected some discrepancies which he found in them. Included in the dataset are variables describing the age, sex, and racial composition of each household, as well as the location of the households and characteristics of nearly every household located in Indiana in 1820, except for those in Daviess county, whose manuscript census schedules for that year were destroyed.
