Finding Historical Census Bureau Statistics


The Census Bureau has been releasing statistics describing the population of the United States since 1790. This webinar explains how and where to find many of the resources that contain those historical Census statistics. It also covers the various formats the data have been released in since the first Census in 1790. Please keep in mind that this webinar is not focused on individual Census records--of particular interest to genealogists-- but rather on summary statistics from the Census Bureau.
