This census draws on the experience of the Floridablanca Census (1787). It was commissioned in 1797 and published in full in 1801. However, the data provided by it should be taken with caution; rather, it should be complemented with other historical sources. We can find data by provinces on men, women, bachelors, married, widowed, clerics, and numerous trades such as merchants, craftsmen, farmers or fishmongers.
