Electronic tabulation of statistical data


Hollerith spent 1882 on the Mechanical Engineering faculty at

HYPERLINK "" \o "MIT" MIT . During that

year he developed a prototype of a system for storing data on punched

cards which was partly inspired by the system used by railroad

conductors in which holes punched in various places on a passenger's

ticket identified the holder's passenger status. Urged on by HYPERLINK

"" \o "John Shaw

Billings" John Shaw Billings , he developed a mechanism for reading the

presence or absence of holes in the cards using spring-mounted needles

that passed through the holes to make electrical connections to trigger

a counter to record one more of each value. The key idea (due to

Billings) was that all personal data could be coded numerically.

Hollerith saw that the numbers could be punched in specified column on

the cards, the cards sorted mechanically, and the appropriate columns

totalled. He described his idea in Patent No. 395,782 of January 8, 1889

as follows:


The herein described method of compiling statistics which consists in

recording separate statistical items pertaining to the individual by
