Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788440489, CD-ROM)A Census Office was not formally established until 1850; in 1902 the office became permanent. In this inventory, the term Census Office is used for the temporary clerical staffs or offices set up every ten years from 1790 to 1900, and the term Bureau of the Census or Census Bureau is used for the permanent office established in 1902. In 1913 the Census Bureau was transferred to the Department of Commerce. "One of the reasons advanced for the establishment of a permanent census bureau was to prevent the loss of valuable records...The Census Office divided its documentation into three main classes: schedules, records, and volumes of reports...This inventory describes the extant census records in three main sections-administrative records of the Census Office, administrative records of the Census Bureau, and census schedules collected in the field under the direction successively of the President, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of the Interior, the Census Office, and the Census Bureau. The records described are those records of the Bureau of the Census and its predecessors that were in the National Archives on February 1, 1964."
