Notes:
  • 1850 census did not identify age range of persons in school.
  • Caution: Census provided number of individuals attending school. "Not Attending School" was computed by subtracting those attending school from Total White Population 5-19.
  • Universe: "White Population 15 to 19" calculated By Social Explorer.
  • White population 5 to 19 for various counties are lower than total population attending school for these counties. Social Explorer inserted 0 for all not in school categories for these counties.
