Madison Wisconsin State Journal (Newspaper) - March 10, 1920, Madison, WisconsinCENSUS TO GIVE CITY OF MADISON 38,000 TO 40,000 POPULATION
THE Wisconsin State Journal has learned from authoritative sources that the present census will give the city of Madison a population of between 38,000 and 40,000 as compared with 25,531 fixed by the census of 1910. This is a gain of between 50 and 60 peroent in ten years. Madison's gain from 1900 to 1910 was approximately 25 percent. Workers under John Moran, supervisor of the census for the third Wisconsin congressional district, have
completed their count of the city, but are still at work in the district. Announcement of the exact figures for Madison will be made by the census bureau in Washington as soon as the entire district is covered and the report completed
by Mr. Moran.
