Where can I find data from previous economic censuses?
Data are available online for some previous economic censuses:
Data from the 1992, 1997, and 2002 Economic Census are also available on CD- or DVD-ROM. See the Census Product Catalog to order these products from the Census Bureau.
Some editions of the Statistical Abstract show selected data from earlier censuses - link to "Earlier Editions" on the Statistical Abstract site to view these data.
