Census Bureau Launches New WebsiteBreaking News
Beginning in the 1950s the United States Census Bureau established a formal history program to prepare procedural histories of the Census of Population and Housing. By 1968, census historians produced procedural histories of the 1960 Population and Housing census and the 1963 economic and 1964 agricultural censuses. Since its official establishment in 1972, the Census History Staff has continued to produce these histories and its responsibilities for preserving the institutional history of the census have grown more expansive with the development of special publications, including the "Factfinder for the Nation" series, the oral history project that began in 1983; a variety of monographs and research papers on specific Census Bureau operations, activities, and projects; and most recently a symposium, "America's Scorecard" focusing on the role of the census in American life.
