What you're looking for are census compendiums--published statistics
for every census year, produced by the US Bureau of Census. They
usually compile not only statistics from a particular census, but also
compare with previous ones. Go to WorldCat and search for US Census
Here's one, just as an example. They contain about all the statistics
about counties and states and cities you would ever want to know

In the past, I've had good luck using the databases on Ancestry to do some statistics based on census records. When I now go to do a search in these materials, based on birthplace and locale, only, I find the search results vary widely from what I would expect.
Can anyone identify for me a census database provider, whose materials and search engine will simply let me do a numerical count of persons in a jurisdiction (like a state or county within a state) from a particular jurisdiction (like a state or country). I do not want to have to enter every county in the state individually, I am looking to develop some summary statistics.
Thanks for any suggestions.
