Economic Censuses -- Census of Transportation

Census of Transportation


Overview

The Census of Transportation was undertaken for the first time on a national basis in 1963. Prior to 1963, some information on transportation was compiled and published in connection with the decennial censuses of 1880 and 1890. Also, during the early part of this century, the Bureau of the Census published reports at intervals covering certain aspects of transportation. Censuses were conducted for the years 1963, 1967, 1972, 1977, 1982, 1987, and 1992. It was broadened in 1992, and a Census of Transportation, Communications, and Utilities began (C 3.292). Starting with 1997, it is classified as part of the Economic Census (C3.277). [Bureau of the Census Catalog of Publications, p.482]
