The National Archives released the 1940 US Census to the public on 2nd April 2012, after a mandatory 72-year waiting period.

The 1940 US Census was taken in April 1940 (official date was 1st April, though entries were recorded throughout early April). The Federal government requires a census to be taken once every ten years for the apportionment of members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The first census was taken in 1790. Over the years, the format of census schedules changed and more questions were asked.

Besides name, age, relationship, and occupation, the 1940 US Census included questions about internal migration; employment status; participation in the New Deal Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), Works Progress Administration (WPA), and National Youth Administration (NYA) programs; and years of education.
