Census 1940 US

Da er endelig folketelling 1940 for USA ute. Den ble tatt opp 2. april 1940. Klausulen for folketellinger i USA er 72 år, og derfor frigis denne nå. Vi er ti år nærmere vår tid når vi leter etter slekt, men hva annet kan denne by på? Folketallet med Alaska og Hawaii er oppe i 150 621 231 personer, en økning på 7,2 prosent siden sist folketelling i 1930. Nedenfor finner dere en oversikt over overskriftene i rubrikkene.
