Census Briefs provide, in a series of succinct reports, data on topics of current interest. Presented in narrative style accompanied by charts and tables, the reports summarize data from current economic and demographic surveys. Each brief also includes sources of additional information on the discussed topic.
Prior to November 1996, Census Briefs were called Statistical Briefs. Beginning in December, 1996, the Statistical Briefs series were redesigned and reissued as Census Briefs.
