Agricultural census go even further, providing the researcher with a view of the vitality of the farm operation based on acreage under cultivation, and amount and type of crops harvested, livestock counts, income and more.

This 224-page book covers the history of the census, offers advice for effective research and notes the potential pitfalls. The author states that Counting Canada, A Genealogical Guide to the Canadian Census is "the most comprehensive guide available for researchers using the Canadian census. This could be the most important book on Canadian genealogy this year".

Ten maps, 100 illustrations, plenty of internet links and a comprehensive bibliography will be helpful for researchers using this book to more fully understand Canadian census record keeping and the census records themselves.
