  Census
     There are five instances of a census of the Jewish people having
     been taken. (1.) In the fourth month after the Exodus, when the
     people were encamped at Sinai. The number of men from twenty
     years old and upward was then 603,550 (Ex. 38:26). (2.) Another
     census was made just before the entrance into Canaan, when the
     number was found to be 601,730, showing thus a small decrease
     (Num. 26:51). (3.) The next census was in the time of David,
     when the number, exclusive of the tribes of Levi and Benjamin,
     was found to be 1,300,000 (2 Sam. 24:9; 1 Chr. 21:5). (4.)
     Solomon made a census of the foreigners in the land, and found
     153,600 able-bodied workmen (2 Chr. 2:17, 18). (5.) After the
     return from Exile the whole congregation of Israel was numbered,
     and found to amount to 42,360 (Ezra 2:64). A census was made by
     the Roman government in the time of our Lord (Luke 2:1). (See TAXING.)
     

Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  CENSUS. An enumeration of the inhabitants of a country. 
       2. For the purpose of keeping the representation of the several states 
  in congress equal, the constitution provides, that "representatives and 
  direct taxes shall be apportioned among the several states, which may be 
  included in this Union, according to their respective numbers; which shall 
  be determined by adding to the whole number of free persons, including those 
  bound to service for a term of years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three-
  fifths of all other persons. The actual enumeration shall be made within 
  three years after the first meeting of the congress of the United States, 
  and within every subsequent term of ten years, in such a manner as they 
  shall by law direct." Art. 1, s. 2; vide 1 Story, L. U. S., 73, 722, 751; 2 
  Id. 1134, 1139, 1169, 1194; 3 Id. 1776; 4 Sharsw. continuation, 2179.
