This is a final Census Report on Population of the Twelfth Census, taken in the year 1900. It incorporates statistics and other materials contained in the preliminary Bulletins of the Twelfth Census.
Part I, which constitutes Volume I of the Census Reports, contains the population of States and Territories, density of population, center of population and median point, population of counties and incorporated places, urban and rural population, sex, general nativity, color, State or Territory of birth, country of birth, foreign parentage, citizenship and years in United States.
Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
