Almost 47 000 lines added to the 1852 census thanks to the volonteer transcriptions between September 2007 and September 2008.
The PRDH census projects are currently working with genealogist volunteers, including Ontario GenWeb, to complete our 20% sample of the 1852 Canadian Census, bringing it to 100%. We are continuing to work with the North Atlantic Population Project to infer and impute household relationships for the 1881 Canadian census microdata. We are also working with Canadian colleagues at the University of Guelph, University of Alberta, University of Victoria and York University to find new sources of funding for census record linkage.
Lisa Dillon recently published "The Shady Side of Fifty: Age and Old Age in Late Victorian Canada and the United States". This book draws upon historical census data from Canada and the United States from 1871 to 1901.
