Hm, I think the census is every 10 years because of Article 1, Section 2 of the Constitution. I didn't even know that it was right in the Constitution until today...TIL!

I do think it's cool that Hollerith made it much easier to accomplish that task, though. I can only imagine the horror of trying to do the census with today's population if it hadn't been automated 😳
