Czechoslovak Population Census – 1930

The database will ultimately contain information about all Jews living in Slovakia, recorded in the 1930 Census of Czechoslovakia.

The second Czechoslovak population census was conducted on 1 December 1930. (The first Czech census was in 1921). The statistical results of the 1930 Census were published in eight volumes, with a separate volume for housing data. This Census enumerated 136,737 Jews in Slovakia, out of a total Jewish population of 356,830 in all of Czechoslovakia. Slovakia’s Jewish population represented 4.11 percent of the total population of Slovakia.

This database will NOT cover the Czech lands (Czechia, Moravia, Silesia), nor the Subcarpathia (Podkarpatska Rus) area.
