Census 2000 & 2010

Starting Points

The first place to start searching for census data is the American FactFinder website. The American FactFinder is the official interface for distributing the 1990, 2000 and 2010 Census of Population and Housing, the 1997 Economic Census, and the American Community Surveys. The site is updated with new data as it becomes available to the public. FactFinder provides many options for finding, viewing, printing, and downloading various data sets. FactFinder also allows the creation of reference and thematic and maps. User-selected tables of data are downloadable in ASCII (text) or CSV (comma separated value) formats.
