This resource provides access to the 1944 through 2000 County and City Data Books. This service provides the opportunity to create custom printouts and/or customized data subsets (subsets only available for 1988-2000).


The data presented here for 1988-2000 were obtained from the CD-ROM versions of the County and City Data Books which were made available to over 1400 depository libraries across the country.

Note: The 1988 CCDB uses FIPS codes for the counties, but "The codes for regions, divisions, places, and MCDs are those established by the Bureau of the Census. The codes for places and MCDs are published in the 1980 Census of Population and Housing, Geographic Identification Code Scheme, (GICS). . . . For places, the four-digit census place codes are used; for MCDs, the three-digit county codes together with the three digit MCD codes are used."
