Format: Paperback
Bill Dollarhide's "The Census Book" is the best reference book on the subject among several that have been issued in the same time frame. While I respect Loretto Szucs'/Matthew Wright's excellent book and the detailed book by Kathleen Hinchley, this one is concise, has detailed dates and references, and is the one I return to again and again, Bravo, Bill! Great work!

Lots of useful information for understanding the Federal Censuses. Clarified a lot of questions and will be a valuable resource in my research.
