HGS: 1700 Census Project: "By order of 19 Oct 1700 a list was to be made of all men in Denmark (most lists seem to be dated December 1700 or January 1701).
It included statistical columns listing a mark for age brackets over 18, 14-18, 10-14, 5-10, and 1-5 as a way of finding out how many men the government could count on in the case of a war.
The 1700 census of men includes a listing of all men by household, giving the property appraisal (hartkorn), the name of the head, his age, all those men in his household, their relationships and occupations, and their ages.
The 1700 census appears to have also been taken in Norway, Iceland, and other areas under Danish rule and many of these have been transcribed and published."
