First published anonymously in 1798, the essay was one of the most influential works on population in its era.

By 1803, Malthus—now firmly established as the author—published a second edition. He continued to revise the work through a total of six editions. One of the lasting contributions of the work was the establishment of a national census in England, Wales and Scotland, held every 10 years beginning in 1801
