The exact number is unknown. However, civilian federal employees and their dependents living overseas were counted in the 1790 Census. This was crucial as private U.S. citizens who were not employed by the federal government were not counted. The U.S. Census is used for apportioning seats in the House of Representatives.

The Constitution created a federal system of government (federalism) as a compromise. Under federalism, power is shared and divided between national and state governments. Both levels have their own agencies and officials and directly affect the people. The Founding Fathers really had no other choice except federalism. The weak union created under the Articles would not work yet people did not want to give all the power to a national government. Federalism was the middle ground--compromise--a way to distribute authority between the states and the national government
