Subject: [NCECHOShare] North Carolina Census Data: 1960-1980
The latest digital project from the State Library of North Carolina
makes North Carolina census data from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s
full-text searchable online for the first time. The collection, housed
in file folders at the State Data Center since it was created from
federal census data decades ago, contains invaluable county- and
state-level demographics information and enumeration district maps from
80 of North Carolina's 100 counties. The majority of the data dates from
the 1980 Census, however, the maps, as well as counts of population and
housing data are available from the 1960 Census, and "Selected
Characteristics" for 99 of 100 counties are available from the 1970
In a state that is changing at such a rapid pace, access to this type of
information gives us insight into just how dramatic these changes are to

North Carolina Census Data: 1960-1980 was produced in partnership with
the North Carolina State Data Center, and was funded through an LSTA
Statewide Leadership Grant.
