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

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

enumerated June, 1880

The object of this Supplemental Schedule is to furnish material not only for a complete enumeration of children in institutions, but for an account of their condition. It is important that every inquiry respecting each case be answered as fully as possible. Enumerators will, therefore after making the proper entries open the Population Schedule (No. 1), transfer the name (with Schedule page and number) of every child found in any institution designed for the care of poor or homeless children, or in any poor-house or other asylum for the destitute, from Schedule No. 1 to this Special Schedule, and proceed to ask the additional questions indicated in the headings of the several columns. Special attention is called to the questions resepcting the child's antecedents, which are designed to bring out the proportion of children in institutions who belong to the respectable and to the civious classes severally.
