Excerpt from Seventh Census of Canada, 1931: Nova Scotia Census of Agriculture

This bulletin presents the statistics of agriculture for the province of Nova Scotia, as compiled from the-data obtained in the census of June 1, 1931. Preliminary bulletins have been published giving the number and size of occupied farms, the number of live stock on farms, acreages, tenure, values, mortgage debt, farm expenses, the acreages of the various crops for 1931 and the acreages and production for 1930. Wherever possible, the figures for 1921, 1911 and in some cases 1901, were included in order to-show the development which has taken place between censuses.

Date of the Census. - The census of 1931, like that of 1921 and 1911 was taken as of June lst, while the census of 1901 was taken as of April lst, and that of 1891 as of April 5th. This should be kept in mind when comparisons of live stock are made, as a census taken in June will include a large number of animals not born in April.

Year to which Census Figures Apply. - ~the statistics of farms, farm operators and farm property, including size, condition, value, tenure, mortgage debt, farm facilities, animals, and acreage under crops, relate to June 1, 1931, while all records of production, values of farm products and expenses relate to the year 1930, except those of maple syrup and sugar which represent the 1931 crop.

Method of Taking the Census. - For the purpose of taking the census, the province was divided into 873 enumeration areas, 711 of which contained farms, the remainder being located in urban centres. An enumerator was appointed for each area, and it was his duty to visit every farm in his district to secure the information asked for on the schedules. The information was secured from the farmer himself or from a competent member of his family. The schedules were then forwarded to Ottawa after having been examined by the census commissioners, where they were edited by a trained staff; any schedule whereon the information did not appear correct was sent back to the enumerator to obtain the necessary data to complete the record.
