Hi everyone!
So I have had multiple requests for a video about the U.S Census. So I began to research to get some more specific information about the U.S Census and realized how detailed it really is. So this will be a multi-part series dedicated to the U.S Census.

So this first part of the video includes a brief mini-history lesson as to how the U.S came to be and it gives some general guidelines about the U.S census.

These general guidelines include:
- The first federal census took place in 1790 and a new one is taken every 10 years (or every year ending in a "0")
-Most of the 1890 census was destroyed in a fire, although there is still some images out there.
- Different census years will give you different information.
- There is a 72 year privacy law that makes it so that a census cannot be released to the public until 72 years after the census was taken. This is why the latest census that is released is the 1930 census.

Enjoy and please rate and review! I always enjoy hearing from you guys!
