This page lists Census of Governments publications owned by the SDSU library. All titles are located in Government Publications & Maps (3rd floor, Love Library), except where noted.

A Census of Governments was taken at approximately 10 year intervals from 1850 to 1942 and again in 1957. Since then this census has been taken at 5-year intervals (for years ending in 2 and 7). Early censuses focused on wealth, taxation, and public indebtedness. Later censuses supply data on numbers and characteristics of governments in the United States, elective officials, value of taxable property, public employees and payrolls, and governmental revenues, expenditures, debt and financial assets.
