1930 Census: Alphabetical Index of Occupations

This index is based upon the occupational designations returned on the schedules at the Twelfth, Thirteenth, and Fourteenth Censuses of the United States. It has been supplemented, however, by designations gleaned from various occupational glossaries and from other sources.

The index is printed in two forms—classified and alphabetical—a separate volume being devoted to each form.

In this alphabetical index the occupational designations are arranged alphabetically and each designation is followed by a symbol indicating to which of the 557 occupations and occupation groups of the classification it belongs.

A Note on Language

Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
