This chapter uses four general censuses of Egypt (1882, 1897, 1907, and 1917) as well as a variety of comprehensive surveys of subcommunities within Alexandria to focus on questions of socio-legal categorization. Although census reports aimed for comprehensive and logical description of the population, sharp category changes from census to census show that categories were anything but certain. This is particularly true of census categories of nationality, which proliferated over this period. This chapter builds on the previous chapter to offer a comprehensive account of the protocols of identification used in Alexandria's multiple legal contexts.
