This is the fourth volume of the 11 final reports of the Fourteenth Census, taken in the year 1920. The statistics and other materials found in these volumes are based upon data originally issued as advance bulletins for population, agriculture, irrigation, drainage, manufactures, and mines and quarries.
Volume IV, Population, contains statistics for the U.S., geographic divisions, states, and for each of its cities having 25,000 inhabitants or more. The volume shows the number and proportion of persons engaged in gainful occupations and the distribution of the gainful workers by sex, color or race, nativity, parentage, age, and marital condition. Included are occupation stats for Alaska, Hawaii, and Porto Rico.
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.
