Louisiana Census - 1940


Using online images of the U.S. census (www.ancestry.com), I am extracting the Pitre families.  


My extractions include the parent/s, children, ages, location, others at the address, house value and occupations. 



Questions asked on the 1940 census:

Address; number of household in order of visitation; home owned or rented; value of home; whether household lives on a farm; name of each person whose usual place of residence on 1 April 1940 would be in the household ("Ab" written after names of people absent); relationship to head of household; sex; color or race; age at last birthday; marital status; education; place of birth; citizenship; residence on 1 April 1935; employment status for those 14 and older (several questions); occupation, industry, class of worker, number of weeks worked full-time in 1939; income in 1939.
