I have a question about the use of the ENUMDIST variable in the 1910 full-count census, which I am trying to match to data from Morse and Weintraub’s Unified Census ED Finder. According to the description, ENUMDIST must be read together with SUPDIST to uniquely identify enumeration districts within the same state. I was wondering whether it would be possible to combine ENUMDIST with STATEICP and COUNTYICP in 1910, since I understand that COUNTYICP would be more disaggregated than SUPDIST, and that counties were wholly contained inside supervisor districts.
In other words, is there any reason why I cannot combine COUNTYICP and ENUMDIST to uniquely identify an enumeration district within a given state? I would be grateful for any advice.
Thank you for your help.
