New Haven and Connecticut History: Data Sets/Census Records

State Data Centers

The State Data Center Network was established by the Census Bureau in 1978 "to make data available locally to the public through a network of state agencies, universities, libraries, and regional and local governments." State Data Centers serve as liaisons to the Census Bureau and provide training in accessing and using data resources.

New Haven Special Census (1967)

In 1967, New Haven participated in a Census Use Study. This study was intended to link data gathered by the Census Bureau to the data collected by local agencies and organizations, in order to inform city planning, policy, and social programs. The study also provided the Census Bureau with a trial run for data collection and analysis in advance of the 1970 Decennial Census. 

The Yale University Library has the complete tabulations and documentation from the 1967 New Haven Special Census; for more information, contact the Marx Science and Social Science Library (
