1930 Census: Location of Manufactures, 1899-1929: A Study of the Tendencies Toward Concentration and Toward Dispersion of Manufactures in the United States

Component ID: #ti1684315791

This study of the location of manufacturing industries is based primarily on data from the four decennial censuses of manufactures in the period from 1899 to 1929. It represents an endeavor to record the increases and decreases which have taken place in industry and which have tended to remold gradually its geographic pattern. The changes which thus redistribute industry are:

(a) The expansion of going manufacturing concerns,

(b) the establishment of new plants,

(c) the relocation of industrial enterprises, and

(d) the lessened activity or discontinuance of plants.

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.
