Citation:Thompson, William J. 'The first census of the Irish Free State and its importance to the country'. - Dublin: Journal of the Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland,Vol. XIV No. 4, 1925-1927, pp239-248
On the 15th March, 1911, about three weeks before the Census day of 1911, I had the privilege and honour of reading a paper before this Society entitled "The Development of the Irish Census and its National Importance." On this occasion, fifteen years later and a little over three weeks before the Census day of 1926, viz., Sunday, the 18th April, I have again the honour and privilege of reading the present paper. As there are only a few here tonight who were present on that occasion, I propose, before dealing with the first part of the paper, to mention briefly certain of the outstanding historical facts that I dealt with in my paper in 1911.
