Census Data

Every 10 years, the United States government is required to count all of its citizens. This is a guide to the Decenniel Census. The government not only tries to count all of us, but also gather different types of data about all of us.

Historic Data on the Internet

    Finding historic census data can be a little difficult. The Census Bureau makes available the data from the 2010 and 2000 Censuses online at American Factfinder. However, they do not provide access to the earlier censuses any longer.
