Census Information

STATISTICAL TABLES
Of the several Districts composing the Cherokee Nation,
In 1824 a resolution was passed by the Legislature of the Cherokee Nation, appointing and authorising [sic] eight persons to take the census of the Nation, and to prepare correct statistical tables of each District. The general result has been laid before the public. Our object in inserting the following tables which we copy from a pamphlet is to show that, if possessions can be considered as indicating the progress of civilization, some of the Districts are considerably farther advanced in improvement than others.
