General & Reference

General and Reference data covers age, agriculture, and Asian Americans; it includes condominimums, crime, and capital costs. The reason for its variety: It describes reference guides and statistical anthologies, each spanning a myriad of social and economic facts.

All documents are in PDF format with a filesize ≤1MB unless otherwise stated.

The Census Bureau

Census and You (Newsletter)

The Census Bureau's monthly newsletter from 1996 to 1999 with articles summarizing newly issued findings reports and data files. It also discusses new software, data collection efforts being planned, and sources of assistance for data users.

The principal emphasis is on demographic, social, housing, and economic data for states and smaller areas. It also publishes key economic indicators (such as housing starts, retail sales, and the Consumer Price Index).

Census Briefs

Census Briefs are short documents providing findings from Census 2000, current demographic surveys, and the 1997 Economic Census. They contain colorful charts to illustrate major points. Prior to November 1996, the Census Briefs were called the Statistical Briefs. Beginning in December, 1996, the Statistical Briefs series were redesigned and reissued as the Census Briefs.

Trouble-Shooting Pre-1995 Briefs in Adobe Acrobat

The Statistical Briefs created before 1995 have presented a couple of errors with the Acrobat reader software. We will leave these publications online with the following recommended work-arounds. One problem is with viewing on screen and another is with printing.

The problem is not in the file itself, but in the way that Acrobat is dealing with fonts used to create the document. The pre-1995 Stat Briefs use fonts which don't have standard Postscript vector encoding. Acrobat has to deal with these as bit-mapped graphics, and the Reader seems to become overwhelmed at some point as it caches these fonts. The problem occurs after several documents using different fonts are loaded into Acrobat Reader or Exchange.

Please exit the Acrobat reader altogether before attempting to read the document you are having trouble with. Then access the document you need, which will start a fresh copy of Acrobat.

A related problem in printing the Statistical Briefs requires you to select a Print Option which will print bit-mapped or True Type fonts as graphics. Do this if your printed output is garbled.

National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation (FHWAR)

National Survey of Homeless Assistance Providers and Clients (NSHAPC)

NSHAPC was conducted to provide updated information on homeless assistance programs and the clients who use them to federal agencies responsible for administering homeless assistance programs and to other interested parties. The data are national in scope, and the survey is the first to gather through one effort a wide range of information relevant to the missions of the federal sponsors. NSHAPC was not conducted to produce a count of homeless persons. NSHAPC was conducted under the direction of the Interagency Council on the Homeless.

Religion

The Bureau of the Census collected information in the Census of Religious Bodies from 1906-1936. This information was obtained from religious organizations.

Public Law 94-521 prohibits us from asking a question on religious affiliation on a mandatory basis; therefore, the Bureau of the Census is not the source for information on religion.

Some statistics on religion can be found in the Statistical Abstract of the United States, the section on Population.

Other sources for religious data:
