    1970 U.S. Census Data

    Anyone know of a good internet source for the 1970 STF3 data?

    I ended up calling our state data center, who then referred me to our Regional Planning & Development Board.

    From a google search, it seems like a number of colleges and universities have the data. It's just not available to the public! You either have to have an account on thier network, or/and you need another proprietary software package to read the data.

    Sounds like a potential multi-year project for interns to put this data on the web in a form for the masses, if you ask me.
