Random Historical Aside

Today, while bored, I looked at the 1940 Census, and at some point I became curious as to whether Franklin Delano Roosevelt had an entry.  As it turns out, he and his household were included in the Census and the address was (naturally) 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  And his occupation was listed as “President of U.S.A.” [sic].  What disappointed me though is that Eleanor was listed as having no occupation.  So a question to my readers.  Do you think First Lady should be considered an occupation?
