8. Oh absolutely
and historians love the damn census for that reason...

Give me a good census form to tell me things like oh the role of women in the economy.

Here is a piece of trivia... using this we can trace how women moved from being mostly the ones catching babies, to mostly banned from midwifery by the 1880s...

That is just a piece of trivia that always makes me smile.

Oh and there are instructions to the overseers as well, as to what to do with midwives and black women who were pregnant... I mean they were property, as horrible as this is, and their well being (and child) made them valuable to the slave owner.
