A census is a count of the population. Ireland began taking national-wide censuses in 1821 but most were destroyed before 1901. The 1901 and 1911 censuses are valuable because of the information they provide.

The 1911 census was taken on 2 April.


The census shows the following:

  • Residence
  • Names
  • Age
  • Relationship to the head of the household
  • Religion
  • Education
  • Age and gender
  • Occupation or profession
  • Marital status
  • Where born

In addition, questions were asked of a married woman how many years she had been married to her current husband, how many children they had and how many were still alive.
