This is the second in a series of releases of previously unpublished data from the 1930 Census, which show families in the U.S. classified by type based on sex and marital condition of the family head and the number of children less than 21 years of age in the family. The first release was by type and size.

The term “gainful workers” included all persons who usually followed a gainful occupation, although they may not have been employed when the census was taken.

This release will provide a tangible basis for considering what tabulations of families classified by type would be most profitably made from the 1940 census returns.

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.
