There were two censuses taken in St Louis in 1880 as too many people complained that the 1st
enumeration missed thousands of families, so a 2nd was done and the second included many more housefolds but they weren't too meticulous in designating which household a person belonged to, so a person shown living alone could be part of the previous or later household. They were paid by household counts rather than people counts.
