The Federal Census of 1940 contains schedules for Vienna Township, Trumbull County, Ohio. The population of the Township in 1940 was 1659. The population of Ohio was 6,907,612. The total population of the United States in 1940 was 132,122,446.
The United States Constitution requires that a population census be undertaken every ten years to determine the appropriation of seats in the United States House of Representatives and for the collection of taxes. The United States was the first nation to legislate a regularly held census.
The Census of 1940 included a national census of housing "to provide information concerning the number, characteristics (including utilities and equipment), and geographic distribution of dwelling structures and dwelling units in the United States". Due to the late (August 1939) authorization of this census by the United States Congress, the housing census of 1940 was taken separately from the population census, although both were collected at the same time.
Several questions in the Census of 1940 reflected the problems faced by the American people because of and during the Great Depression. The housing census was created to ascertain the conditions of the nation's housing stock, for example. Other questions covered unemployment, internal migration, and income.
The 1940 Census was the sixteenth census taken in the United States and was recorded the population as of April 1, 1940.
The Census in Vienna
Vienna resident Mary Murphy Otte was the Census enumerator and recorded each and every entry. Her son, Phil Otte, reported that she did not have an automobile! (Vienna Historical Society meeting, April 24, 2012.)
The Township's census is available as PDF files (separated into five files due to file size limits). For your convenience (we hope), we have compiled a key, listing each family name by page.
You may also find the Township's census via The National Archives and Records Administration's website. The enumeration district number is 78-85.
