This schedule almost doubled the data recorded about each farm. The questions on Tenure will identify the farm occupier as owner, fixed money rental or rental for share of product. This will create a more complete picture of the individual, their occupation as a farmer, as well as the possible status in the community.

The original content for this article was contributed by The National Institute for Genealogical Studies in June 2012. It is an excerpt from their course US: Occupational Records  by Beverly Rice, CG. The Institute offers over 200 comprehensive genealogy courses for a fee ($).

Contents

The Schedules by Year:
Population and Non-Population Schedules

1880

The schedules for 1880 included more detailed information on the Manufactures and Agriculture schedules. The Social Statistics schedule was discontinued and the Defective, Dependent, and Delinquent Classes were added.

Population Schedule

The 1880 census removed the occupation-related information about the value of real and personal estate of each individual.

Questions from the 1880 Population Schedule related to occupations:

  • Name of Person
  • Profession, Occupation, or Trade of each person, male or female
  • Education
  • Cannot read
  • Cannot write

Agriculture Schedule

This schedule almost doubled the data recorded about each farm. The questions on Tenure will identify the farm occupier as owner, fixed money rental or rental for share of product. This will create a more complete picture of the individual, their occupation as a farmer, as well as the possible status in the community.

The questions for the southern states broke down the information on labor by white and black labor. Also some of the crops were altered for the southern states.

Questions from the 1880 Agriculture Schedule related to occupations:

  • Of the Person Who Conducts this farm
  • The Name
  • Tenure
  • Owned
  • Rents for fixed money rental
  • Rents for share of products
  • Acres of Land-Improved
  • Tilled (including fallow and grass in rotation, whether pasture or meadow), number of acres
  • Permanent meadows, permanent pastures, orchards, vineyards, number of acres
  • Acres of Land-Unimproved
  • Woodland and forest, number of acres
  • Other unimproved including old fields not growing wood, number of acres
  • Farm Values
  • Of farm including land, fences and building, in dollars
  • Of farming implements and machinery, in dollars
  • Of Live Stock, in dollars
  • Fences, cost of building and repairing in 1879, in dollars
  • Cost of fertilizer purchased in 1879, in dollars
  • Labor

Manufacture Schedule

The 1880 Manufacture changed by more than its name, previously known as the Industry schedule. Instead of one schedule for all industries, the schedules were broken down in to the twelve different industries. :*Agricultural implements Ÿ

  • Paper Mills

Ÿ:*Boots and shoes

  • ŸLeather and tanning and curing
  • Flourmills and gristmills

Ÿ:*Cheese, butter and condensed milk factories Ÿ

  • Slaughtering and meatpacking Ÿ
  • Salt
  • Ÿ Lumber mills and sawmills
  • Brickyards and tile works Ÿ
  • Coal mines
  • Quarries

The data is similar to the 1850-1870 schedules with question such as: Ÿ

  • Name of the corporation, company, or individual with the annual value of over $500.
  • Ÿ Capital value
  • Ÿ Wages and Hours of labor, male and female
  • Ÿ Power used in manufacturer
  • Raw materials used in production
  • Products Ÿ
  • Months in operation

Each schedule reports specific information depending on the industry to be reported. I have not included the break down for each of the twelve schedules, except for the basic question listed above.

Mortality Schedule

Similar to the previous Mortality Schedules.

Questions from the 1880 Mortality Schedule related to occupations:

  • Name of person
  • Professional, Occupation, or Trade
  • Disease or Cause of Death (significant if related to occupation)
Defective, Dependent, Delinquent Classes

This schedule was only issued in 1880. There are seven supplements to this schedule that include: Ÿ

  • Insane Inhabitants
  • Idiots
  • Deaf-Mutes Ÿ
  • Blind Inhabitants Ÿ
  • Homeless Children in Institutions
  • Inhabitants in Prison
  • Pauper and Indigent Inhabitants

These individuals were also listed on the population schedule with cross-reference to the DDD schedule.

Questions related to occupations are limited on these schedules, however any information about the individual will add to their ability to complete a full view of an individual’s occupation.

Was the individual deaf or blind because of a work-related accident? The prison inhabitant’s schedule speaks to a person’s “not too legal” occupations or possibly a variation of their regular occupation.
