Historical Census Browser

Due to a recent intrusion by hackers, further security concerns, and data that is both outdated and contains transcription errors, our Historical Census Browser site is being closed. It will remain up in its current state (search working, maps not) through the end of 2016, but will be turned off completely on December 31, 2016.

Our librarians recommend that you use Social Explorer, a site that has current and correct data (along with additional data) and that allows mapping of search results.

Another resource that has an accurate version of this data is the National Historical Geographic Information System site.
