particular census taker made. I've not seen it in the several dozen upper
Hungary census I reviewed. I would suggest reviewing the entire village

Larger? Smaller? Other categories?
Note that the census in a small village was usually conducted by a prominent
resident, such as a priest or mayor. What was the size of your village?
How many households? Where is your village located?
