    Seeking 1910 Census Column Codes Key/Legend

    Roberta Ross-Fisher Newbie

      I need to find the legend or key for the column codes in the 1910 Census. Specifically, I'm interested in columns 29-32. Here is the specific citation for the one I'm interested in: Year: 1910; Census Place: Lafayette, Chippewa, Wisconsin; Roll: T624_1703; Page: 9B; Enumeration District: 0073; FHL microfilm: 1375716. There appears to be a pattern between those four codes and the "occupation" listed for each inmate. For example, all the inmates whose occupation was "Household Tasks" were coded in columns 29-32 as: 0-3-7-X.  One of my ancestors (John Moriarity, line 95) is listed as an inmate, and I'm trying to find out why. Thanks for any help you can provide!
