About 1875 Norway Census

The 1875 Census

The 1875 Census was held on December 31, 1875 and was designed to allow for the inclusion of both people native to the country and other residents. This called for the inclusion of a new item, i.e. nationality. Sailors on Norwegian ships abroad were counted, as well as all crew members on ships in Norwegian ports. For the very first time, people were asked their year of birth, rather than their age.
