Statistics of Swedes in America, 1910 and 1930. LCA Collection 264. 1 ½ Hollinger boxes.
The Statistics of Swedes in America collection contains statistics taken from the 1910 and 1930 United States censuses. Data represents the Swedish population of each state, broken down by counties, as well as the percent of the Swedish population belonging to the Lutheran Augustana Synod. Also included are Synod statistics broken down by conference, and some data about Synod pastors. Some of the statistics are taken from earlier federal censuses and Synod statistical reports. The majority of Swedes in the U.S. at that time could be found in New England and the Upper Midwest.
