Supplemental Schedules for the Defective, Dependent, and Delinquent Classes.

Inhabitants in ...(see below)..., in the County of ...Livingston..., State of ...Illinois...

enumerated June, 1880

Idiots

[Original Terminology and spellings used]

"The object of this Supplemental Schedule is to furnish material not only for a complete enumeration of the idiots, but for an account of their condition. It is important that every inquiry respecting each case be ansered as fully as possible. Enumerators will, therefore, after making the proper entires upon the Population Schedule (No. 1) transfer the name (with Schedule page and number) of every idiot found. The word "idiot" has a special meaning which it is essential for every enumerator to know. An idiot is a person the development of whose mental faculties was arrested in infancy or childhood before coming to maturity. It is sometimes difficult to distinguish between the stupidity which results from idiocy and that which is due to the loss or deterioration of mental power in consequence of insanity. The latter is not true idiocy, but dementia or imbecility. The enumeration desired for the census is of true idiots only. Demented persons should be classed with the insane. Enumerators may obtain valuable hints as to the number of idiots, and their residences, from physicians who practice medicine in their respective districts."

Notes:

Note A: An idiot may be found either at his own home or away from it in some institution, such as a training school, asylum or poor-house. In the latter case, his residence when at home must be stated, in order that he may be accredited to the State or county to which he properly belongs so that the county in which the institution is situated may not be charged with more than its due proportion of the blind.

Note B: If self-supporting, say "yes" if partly self-supporting, say "partly: if not, say "no". Indicate all inmates of institutions who are maintained or treated at their personal expense (not at the expense of any town, county or State, nor of the institution) by the word "Pay"

Note C: If an idiot from birth, say "b"; if idiocy occurred after birth, state the age at which it occurred. Special pains should be taken to indicate all idiots from birth.

Note D: The causes of idiocy are such as the following: scarlet fever, measles, meningitis,&c. blow on head, fall, &c, fright, &c.
