The 1900 Federal Census was the twelvth enumeration of the United States population and the first one of the new century.

Elsewhere in the Spring/Summer of 1900, the second modern Olympics were held in Paris, France. Among the competitors were 55 Americans whose strong performance dominated the sprints and field events. In China, the government was busy responding to the Boxer Rebellion. And in Germany, a new form of transportation recorded its first — Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin's hydrogen-filled airship successfully completed its maiden voyage in Friedrichshafen.
