A census is the process of obtaining information about every member of a population. Examples: nation population census, agriculture census, voting, … The first census was taken by the Babylonians in 3800 BC, nearly 6000 years ago. It counted the number of people, livestock, quantities of butter, honey, milk, wool and vegetables. The oldest existing data are on the census in China during the Han Dynasty, in the fall of 2 AD.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
