Biographical/Historical:     State censuses were first compiled in 1845 and continued until 1945.  The state census supplemented the federal census carried out at the end of each decade and was used for the determination of legislative electoral districts.  The sixth census was authorized in 1935 (Chap. 17269, Laws) and the Commissioner of Agriculture was responsible for its coordination.  The state census was abolished in 1949 (Senate Joint Resolution #46, 1949).  The federal census has therefore served as Florida's census record since 1950.

Summary:     This series contains the original schedule of the sixth state census conducted in 1935.  The schedule includes the following information: name, address (whether inside or outside city limits), age, sex, race, relation to family, place of birth, degree of education, whether home owner or renter, and occupation.  There is no index to these records.
