The census is divided into sections. Each section is a volume. A volume contains legal-sized paper in landscape format. For the purposes of the census, the country was divided into large provinces or territories, which were further divided into departments or partitions (partidos), and finally into districts (distritos). In the city of Buenos Aires, the partitions were divided into neighborhoods (barrios), and each neighborhood into a police section. These police sections include the number of the census subdivision and its corresponding block numbers and street names.

The census is a good source of genealogical information that may not be obtainable elsewhere, particularly if civil or parish records are not available. The census is the third best source for genealogical information in Argentina, with civil and church records being the number one and two source. The census was taken by regular citizens assigned to areas. The person being questioned did not have to show legal evidence of the information given, so the information may contain some errors. A patron may gather the information available from census records, and then continue to search using civil or parish records. The census is generally in good condition.

What is in the Collection?

This Collection will include records for 1895.

This census was the second national census of the Argentine Republic. It was carried out in one day on Sunday, May 10, 1895 by the Census Commission, under the supervision of the Ministerio del Interior and the administration of President José E. Uriburu.

The census is divided into sections. Each section is a volume. A volume contains legal-sized paper in landscape format. For the purposes of the census, the country was divided into large provinces or territories, which were further divided into departments or partitions (partidos), and finally into districts (distritos). In the city of Buenos Aires, the partitions were divided into neighborhoods (barrios), and each neighborhood into a police section. These police sections include the number of the census subdivision and its corresponding block numbers and street names.

The census was done to obtain demographic and statistical data related to the country's development. Valuable data was gathered that gave insight into population growth, economic growth, immigration and internal migrations, occupations, health, literacy levels, property, and more.

Inhabitants
Population censused 3,954,911
Indians (calculated) 30,000
Not censused (calculated) 60,000
Argentines in the exterior (calculated) 50,000
Total 4,094,911


The census is a good source of genealogical information that may not be obtainable elsewhere, particularly if civil or parish records are not available. The census is the third best source for genealogical information in Argentina, with civil and church records being the number one and two source. The census was taken by regular citizens assigned to areas. The person being questioned did not have to show legal evidence of the information given, so the information may contain some errors. A patron may gather the information available from census records, and then continue to search using civil or parish records. The census is generally in good condition.

These records are written in Spanish; see the section For Help Reading these Records for translation helps.
