    The computer processing systems were developed and coordinated in the Economic Statistical Methods and Programming Division,Charles P. Pautler, Jr.,Chief.H. Ray Dennis, Hyman Chansky,andMartin S. Harahush,Assistant Chiefs, Special Projects Branch, were responsible for design and implementation of the computer systems. The automation of the Economic Census dates back to the use of tabulating typewriters in , punch card tabulating equipment in , and electronic computers in Starting in , selected large firms were allowed to file their reports on computer tape. The Economic Census was the first to allow every firm to file electronically.

    It was the first commercially viable electronic digital computer. Use of the UNIVAC I computer to tabulate the census did not yield great improvement over past tabulating methods, due to general inexperience with the computer and the awkwardness of this early computer technology. Today, IBM supports the Peer-to-Patent project, a historic effort to improve patent quality by opening the examination process to community review. Herman Hollerith, inventor of the tabulating machine that was used in U.S. population censuses, had worked briefly as an assistant examiner at the U.S. Patent Office in –84 before becoming a.

"Winner of the Book Award in Computers/Internet, Independent Publisher Book Awards" "Prior to the advent of programmable data-processing electronic devices in the midth century, the word computer was commonly used to describe a person hired to crank out stupefyingly tedious calculationsCited by: Computer and Internet Use Data Tools Interactive applications, created by the Census Bureau, to help you find, customize, and even visualize, statistics and information from multiple censuses.

"Winner of the Book Award in Computers/Internet, Independent Publisher Book Awards" "The history of the electronic computer has become the topic of a fair amount of scholarly work, and yet the wonderful story of the (collective) human computer has barely been noticed.

This book will appeal both to an appreciable range of scholars and to /5(9). the subjects the various censuses needed to cover without unduly burdening the respondents. Further assistance came through the use of electronic computers in the s and mail enumeration in the s.

In addition, the processing offices' electronic equipment was installed that would be used in to convert questionnaire data to computer-readable form. With the installation of the network of computers across all offices, the Census Bureau significantly increased the full-scale decentralized use of its new automated management information system (MIS).

the forefront of these efforts. Census data-processing equipment has graduated from machines just assisting tabulation work, to indispensable tools in virtually all phases of census work. Computers. The census enumerator recorded this information on a form specially designed for electronic data processing by FOSDIC (Film Optical Sensing Device for Input to Computer).

The information was either transcribed from the ACR to the complete-count FOSDIC schedule or. Handbook on the Management of Population and Housing Censuses. Revision 2. United Nations. It has retained the top spot in all 22 censuses since, growing from a population of ab in toin and then to million in (two years after the five boroughs.

The obvious way of describing the growth of computer use is to tabulate the number of installations each year. In compiling censuses on computers, it is common to omit small desk calculators and count only machines on which some substantial calculation or data processing can be carried out, for example, stored-program computers, for which the.

CIESIN's computers are online continuously and allow users to obtain instantaneously tabulations for any population of interest. For example, a user might be interested in the labor-force status for Hispanic and black men and women, aged years, who completed 4 years of high school and who live in a specific metropolitan area or a specific state.

Gary T. Sheridan, Chief, Macro Analytical Branch. FAO has published a booklet "Micro-computer-based data processing" (), illustrating how to use standard software packages like dBase, SAS, and Lotus in census applications; however, it should be read as a guide to processes and techniques rather than as a reference to specific hardware or software, as technology in this area is changing rapidly.

Census-takers used handheld computers. These sophisticated computers record and store information on a country-wide broadband internet service.

Finally, the handheld computers are able to translate the questionnaire into different indigenous languages, improving the participation of the many indigenous communities in Brazil.

Appropriately enough the first UNIVAC delivered, inwent to the U.S. Census Bureau, still hungry to improve its data-processing capabilities. No, computer users would not use punched cards. The bottlenecks of centralized tallying of census forms stimulated more than a century of extraordinary technical innovation, including punch card tabulation, the first practical application of an electronic computer, and the first large-scale optical mark recognition system.
