The counting of people in the census which we use to locate families is called the Population Schedule. Additional schedules were used to identify and quantify resources and needs. These schedules are called Non-Population schedules. Agriculture, mortality, and social statistics schedules are available for the census years of 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880. Manufacturing schedules are available for 1820, 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880. They are arranged by state, then by county, and then by political subdivision (township, city, etc.).
Non-Population Schedules available through Family History Library
