This is a final Census Report on Vital Statistics of the Twelfth Census, taken in the year 1900.
Part I, which constitutes Volume III of the Census Reports, contains general tables giving the statistics of deaths by conjugal condition and occupation in relation to causes of death, with analysis of the results, and the ratio tables. Contents include population, births, death rates and ratios, age and sex, color and race, nativity and parentage, birthplaces of mothers, month, marital status, and occupations.
Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
