An improvement from ten years to three months is pretty massive, ~ 98% reduction in time.

Can you imagine working on a census for ten years? 🤯

Well actually it was totally useless. At that time there was a huge population growth, especially due to immigration. Even three months was too much to keep up, but ten years? I would say wasted work ... (and what a horrible job).
