Re: CENSUS "TWILIGHT ZONE"
In Response To: CENSUS "TWILIGHT ZONE" ()
People are often listed twice in census. Remember that the actual people were not always interviewed - someone may report persons staying in a household who live elsewhere, folks visiting got listed where visiting and at home sometimes. Census takers also didn't do census on the same days - folks moved and got counted twice.
People also got listed in households where they worked and where they lived.
