Come ready to compare employment, divorce, and home ownership statistics from the 1910 & 1940 censuses. Erin will also discuss the cultural context and controversies surrounding the 1940 census – such as how the Great Depression influenced census questions and impacted Oberlin residents – and depict the enumerators who originally collected census data by hand.
