Many states or counties required school censuses of families with school age children to help determine public school funding needs. These censuses are usually found at the local school board, county archives, or state archives. In some areas school censuses were taken almost every year. Recent years may be restricted for privacy reasons.

Typically, school censuses list each family with school age children and their ages.

Only rarely are school censuses indexed.
