The area that is now [[Idaho|Idaho]] was for some years included in the federal censuses under the name of other territories:
 
 
*'''1850''' Oregon Territory (no known white residents in what is now Idaho)
 
*'''1860''' Washington Territory (for Idaho residents, if any, see the Spokane County, Washington census)
 
*'''1870 and later''' in Idaho Territory or State
 
 
Also, in '''1860''' and '''1870''' a few households on thin slices of far southern Idaho were included in the federal censuses of Cache County, and possibly Box Elder County, Utah.
 
 
Also, the '''1856 territorial census''' of Utah included residents in "Malad County" and the northern part of Cache County who lived on the south edge of Idaho.
 
 
Idaho itself did not take any state or territorial censuses of its residents.

=== Why use a census?  ===
 
 
A well-indexed census is one of the easiest ways to locate where an ancestor's family lived and when they lived there. You can also use censuses to follow the changes in a family over time, and identify neighbors. These and other clues provided by censuses are important because they help find additional kinds of records about the family.
