Census Research: Holdings

Holdings

Holdings at Loyola of specifc Census data can be found under each individual Census. For more information on individual Census holdings, see the tab for a specific decennial census. Pages for individual Census years are being developed on an as-needed basis and do not reflect a lack of material holdings at LUC. Contact the Government Documents librarian for more information.

Publications relating to the Census can be found in the Onling Catalog under the subject heading "United States Census."

Because the Census has been used to aid the examination of almost every aspect of American life, espcially the nation's racial and economic makeup, finding related materials about the Census can seem as demanding as it can be rewarding; try a variety of associations between the Census and your area of research, or contact the Government Documents librarian. Some useful subject headings include the following:

  • Census
  • Census undercounts United States
  • United States Bureau of the Census
  • United States Census Bibliography
  • United States Census Bibliography Catalogs
  • United States Census Economic aspects
  • United States Census Forms, blanks, etc.
  • United States Census Handbooks, manuals, etc.
  • United States Census History
  • United States Census Indexes
  • United States Census Methodology
  • United States Census Social aspects
