The people of Great Britain and Ireland are accustomed
every ten years to the taking of the Census, occurring, as it
does, in the first year of each decennial period. To a
majority of the population this may seem a comparatively
routine business, and to many, no doubt, a great trouble, as
the head of each family is required to give certain information
by means of a Form which must be filled up on a specified day.
The information received, however, from this Form, troublesome
as it may have appeared to some individuals to give, is of
the greatest importance from a social, statistical, and national
point of view.
