This article is based on research originally presented in my Ph.D. thesis, ‘Census-taking, political economy and state formation in Britain, c. 1790–1840’ (2010). I would particularly like to thank my supervisor, Richard Smith, and my examiners, Julian Hoppit and Emma Rothschild, for their extremely helpful comments and advice. In addition, audiences at the Institute of Historical Research and the 2011 Economic History Society Annual Conference, together with Peter Kitson, Elizabeth Rough, Leigh Shaw-Taylor, Tony Wrigley, and four anonymous referees, provided useful feedback on earlier versions of this article. The research was funded by an ESRC 1 + 3 Quota Award (PTA-031–2005-00272) and a Junior Research Fellowship at St John's College, Cambridge.
