The 1870 federal census is the ninth census of the United States. It was authorized by Congress on May 23, 1850 (9 Stat. 428), and was begun on June 1, 1870. The enumeration was to be completed within five months.

By the time of the 1870 federal census, the vast region of the former unattached lands of the Nebraska Territory west of the Missouri River in present-day North Dakota and South Dakota had become part of the Dakota Territory.

The 1870 enumeration of the Dakota Territory included Pembina County in present-day eastern North Dakota, and Bon Homme, Brookings, Buffalo, Charles Mix, Clay, Deuel, Hutchinson, Jayne, Lincoln, Minnehaha, Todd, Union, and Yankton Counties in present-day South Dakota.

Several military forts (trading posts) were also enumerated along the Missouri River, including Fort Buford, Fort Stevenson, and Fort Rice, as well as Fort Totten, in present-day North Dakota, and the Grand River Agency, the Cheyenne Agency, and Fort Sully, in present-day South Dakota.

A total of 14,181 persons were enumerated in the Dakota Territory in 1870, including 2,405 persons in present-day North Dakota, and 11,776 persons in presen
t-day South Dakota.
