In one argument in favor of slavery, the Southern delegates used the 1790 census - which revealed how many more slaves lived in the South than in the North - to argue that slavery would not simply die out, as Jefferson believed. Secondly, they insisted that Northern delegates had no right to dictate behavior to the South, whose slavery situation was so distinct from their own.
