             Census. This worksheet is a set of data fields for collecting information on the
             number of animals in an area. In a census, the specific activities of the animals,
             or signs of the animals need not be recorded here. Typically ungulate aerial
             surveys use these data fields because surveyors are interested in population
             estimates and ratios, such as cow-calf ratios. Each row of information tends to
             be group-centric; that is each row can record information about the number,
             age, and sex of animals seen in a group.
