Abstract
This collection contains information from the 1880 Census of Manufacturing for 36 states and the District of Columbia. It was originally collected to paint a quantitative picture of industrialization in the United States and to complement a similar data collection of STATE SAMPLES FROM THE CENSUS OF MANUFACTURING: 1850, 1860, AND 1870 (ICPSR 4071). The data describe states and counties in terms of urban or rural, amount of capital invested, and numbers of male, female, and child workers employed. Additional information includes daily wage for skilled and unskilled labor, annual wage bill, hours in ordinary day's labor, number of waterwheels and steam engines, and horsepower by water or steam.
