In 1820 there were 23 states in the United States (Louisiana, Indiana, Mississippi, Illinois, Alabama and Maine were new). There were district wide losses in the census schedules for the Arkansas Territory and the Missouri Territory and for New Jersey. There were also partial losses of half the counties in Alabama and about 20 eastern Tennessee counties.

In some instances, 1820 US census substitutes are available which use existing land and tax records for 1820.
