1800 Census of Population and Housing

A February 28, 1800, act provided for the taking of the second census of the United States, which included the states and territories northwest of the Ohio River and Mississippi Territory. The guidelines for the 1800 enumeration followed those of the first enumeration, except that the work was to be carried on under the direction of the Secretary of State. The enumeration was to begin, as in 1790, on the first Monday in August, and conclude in 9 calendar months. (quoted from Census Bureau description)
