1940 Census Released

The embargo has been lifted, and for the first time, the 1940 census is not only available, but available online. The files accessible via Census.gov can be downloaded in a zip file of the whole thing or in individual PDF's. It is nicely broken down into the Census of Housing, Census of Agriculture, etc.

Here's the transcript of a pretty good NPR story (from "All Things Considered"), which you can listen to if you choose.

And here's a clip from last night's CBS nightly news.
