Excerpt from The Census and Some of Its Uses: Outlining a Plain Philosophy of Population "There Is No Wealth but Life"; The Census Act, 1920, for Great Britain and "the Census (Ireland) Act, 1920"
Since that outline was penned nearly two decades have elapsed, and Census-taking has evolved very considerably.
The Census Act of 1920 has inaugurated a new era of Enumeration, as is appropriate and necessary in the novel circumstances of an after-war age.
No longer need the Census and its authority be decennial. For a permanent measure and a quinquennial Census there has for half a century been a strong cry from statisticians. Both these desiderata have now been granted. The Census Act is permanent. By the statute of 1920, His Majesty may authorise, by Order in Council, a Census to be taken five years after the Enumeration of 1921.
A better and fuller Census is in view with the achieve ment, mainly owing to the efforts of the Royal Statistical Society, of the two main fresh points in Census-taking permanency and power to carry out an Enumeration every five years.
