Population and Per Capita Income Estimates, 1969-1975 (ICPSR 7577)

Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Commerce. Bureau of the Census


This data collection contains population and per capita income estimates for over 39,000 governmental entities in the United States, recorded for selected years from 1969 to 1975. These estimates were developed to provide updates of the data elements in federal revenue sharing allocations under the state and local Fiscal Assistance Act of 1972. Estimates recorded in the data file are for July 1 of the respective years, while per capita income refers to the entire year. Data items included are population in 1970 as recorded in the decennial census of that year, population estimates for 1973 and 1975, and per capita money income estimates for 1969, 1972, and 1974.
