National Archives UK
Take a listen to the National Archives UK podcast episode Counting The People that explores the creation of the census, with the mass organisation of enumerators, temporary clerks, permanent civil service clerks and registrars, and according to the podcast webpage, it includes fascinating stories that lie behind each census, to help us better understand the records we think we know so well.
The US censuses are released when they are 72 years old so the 1940 Census is due out in 2012. Watch short training films for U. S. Census enumerators.
