In addition to being essential for political representation and deciding federal funding, census data is crucial for historians. But to protect people’s privacy, historians can’t access census data until 72 years later. Every 10 years, another census record becomes available for the public to access.

In this digital exhibit, use an interactive timeline to get a behind-the-scenes look at how our Museum historians have used the census to learn how residents of the Lower East Side lived.
