Biographical/Historical:     State censuses were first compiled in 1845 and every ten years after 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 third census was authorized in 1866 (Chap. 1538, Laws) and the Secretary of State 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 returns from the third state census conducted in 1867.  Although incomplete, the records include books of enumeration from Hernando, Madison, Orange, and Santa Rosa Counties, total tabulations for the State, and miscellaneous fragments, such as a page listing the enumeration for Franklin County.
    The books of enumeration have separate listings for "colored" and white inhabitants.  Both include the name of the head of the family, the number of males over and under 21, the number of females over and under 18, the total number of inhabitants, and the number of males between 18 and 45.  The tabulations list population totals by county for "colored" and white populations.
