Through the 1990 Census of Population and Housing Guide, the Census Bureau seeks to provide a thorough and helpful reference for the users of 1990 data. The agency is issuing the Guide in three parts. This one—Part A. Text—deals with such topics as questions asked in the census, data products available to users, and assistance offered by the Census Bureau and other organizations. It furnishes the information a user needs to determine the types of data presented and areas for which statistics are reported. It also discusses basic technical considerations relating to machine-readable products and provides the user with a practical understanding of the data.

A Note on Language

Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
