Title: Historical Census Data and Understanding the Past, Present and Future of Nursing
Abstract: Recent advances in accessibility and analysis of historical U.S. Census data enable more accurate examination of professional nurse populations and are useful for identifying data on groups traditionally undercounted in historical studies of nursing such as minority nurses and nurses who are men. This paper will discuss methods used to create a more precise portrait of the early 20th century U.S. nurse population identifying pertinent patterns of change over time.
