U.S. census data varies from decade to decade in the types of information gathered, in geographical specificity, and in forms of aggregation. The 1850 census, for example, does not provide addresses, so a random sample drawn from twenty consecutive pages in the city's Spruce Ward was examined. The Spruce Ward extended from 7th to 16th and Spruce to Lombard streets (although a check on some addresses in city directories suggests some looseness in the polling area). For the 1880 and 1920 census, seven specific sites were sampled ranging across the more residential part of the site. Privacy dictates that specific data about individual households is not available from the 1990 census. The smallest entity for which data was provided is the census block group. The map accompanying the 1990 data shows the boundaries of the census block groups chosen for this most recent sampling.
