This series consists of 52 reports-number 1 for the United States and numbers 2 through 52 for the States and the District of Columbia in alphabetical order rather than in order of publication.
The United States summary report presents 1970 census statistics on the basic demographic characteristics (age, sex, race, and relationship to head of household) of the population for the United States, each State, and the District of Columbia.
The State and District reports present 1970 census statistics on the basic demographic characteristics of the inhabitants of the State. Data on age, sex, race, and relationship to head of household are shown for the State, each standard metropolitan statistical area, each place of 10,000 inhabitants or more, and each county or comparable area.
The data presented here are being issued in advance of their publication in Final Report Series PC(1)B, which will provide additional information on these demographic characteristics of the population.
The PDF to the right contains advance reports for the United States and Alabama through Florida.
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.
