Data Countdown

The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration has announced that on 2 April 2012, the 1940 Census Data will be released online. Data includes name, age, gender, race, marital status, education and place of birth, as well as income and occupation.  The census instructions also requested that the enumerator indicate whether or not the person had worked for the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), Works Progress Administration (WPA), or National Youth Administration (NYA) during the week of 24-30 March 1940.

Guidelines for conducting research using the 1940 Census may be found at:  http://www.archives.gov/research/census/1940/start-research.html.
