The U.S. census is taken every 10 years on a designated census day by an enumerator in a specific area called an enumeration district (E.D.). The first U.S. census was done in 1790; there are no U.S.censuses before 1790. The 1890 census was destroyed. Census information is kept confidential for 72 years after the census is taken.
Immigration is entering a country where you are not a native to take up permanent residence. Emigration is leaving a country where you have been a citizen.
