    The U.S. Census Bureau was established as a permanent agency within the Department of the Interior in 1902. Prior to that, the work was performed by a temporary office overseen by other agencies, including the Department of State and Department of Interior. The first censuses were conducted by U.S. Marshals and their assistants, and replaced by specially-appointed and trained census takers in 1880.

    The questions to the left are some of the most frequently asked about the Census Bureau's history and the people who have worked here.

DeBow's map of the United States showed his delineation of the United States into four major regions, based on the major drainage systems of North America.
