Where can I find historical census data on the population?
In addition to our Selected Historical Decennial Census Population and Housing Counts, 1790 to 1990, for all geographic areas in the United States, there are three major sources of historical decennial census data:
In addition to the above, the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) (http://www.fdlp.gov/) provides local access for census data users. Libraries designated as FDLPs maintain census publications and products as part of their existing collection and are responsible for assuring that the public has free access to these materials. Each Congressional District has at least one FDLP. Libraries identified as Regional Depository Libraries (one per state) have extensive collections of census publications and electronic products. Other FDLPs often have a more limited selection.
