Comparability

The 1950 census directly recorded the type of agency that operated each institution. For 1850-1930, GQFUNDS was inferred from the title recorded on the manuscript and from the occupants' personal characteristics (e.g., occupation, relationship). The instructions to enumerators mentioned hotels, poorhouses, garrisons, hospitals, asylums, jails, penitentiaries, prisons, almshouses, large rooming houses, and military installations as examples of group quarters.

  • User Note: The Census Bureau did not collect information on the type of group quarters in the 1910 census. This is reflected in the 1910 complete count file, where all group-quarters units have been assigned a GQ code of 4 (other group quarters). Values for GQ, GQTYPE, and GQFUNDS in the 1910 1% and 1.4% samples have been imputed.

In the 1950 census PUMS, households with 5 or more persons unrelated to the head were labeled group quarters. For earlier samples, units with 10 or more persons unrelated to the head were considered group quarters (see GQ). Data for 1950 are likely to be more accurate (due to the explicit request for information about the operating agency) and, as noted, encompass smaller households than in earlier years.
