Good information for Anthropologists and Historians:

From: Robert Whaples

The Commerce Department's Census Bureau and its National Technical 
Information Service are releasing "Population of States and Counties of the 
United States: 1790 to 1990."  The report provides the total population for 
each of the nation's 3,141  counties from 1990 back to the first census in 
which the county appeared.  Notes about changes in state boundaries, changes 
in names of counties, and how each county was formed are included in the 
report.  Also, the report specifies the earliest census in which the county 
had its 1990 boundaries so users can compare population size and change for 
previous years.  The 236-page report is for sale by the National Technical 
Information Service, 5285 Port Royal Road, Springfield, VA 22161; 
703-487-4650.  The cost is $35 plus handling.  Refer to order number 
PB96-119060.  An electronic version also is available on diskette as an 
ASCII text file for $35 plus handling.  Refer to order number PB96-500525.
