1990 U.S. Census LOOKUP

The CD-ROM System has been moved from LBNL to UC Berkeley. The LBNL Web pages are no longer maintained and are provided temporarily for historical purposes only. Users not needing the historical information should refer to the new CD-ROM home page, at UC Berkeley.

NOTE: This page is not fully up to date. URLs referring to bigsur.lbl.gov or cedrcd.lbl.gov may be inoperative due to the move of computers from LBNL to the UC Berkeley Library. These Web pages will be updated when the move is completed.

LOOKUP is an experimental WWW server for retrieving data from 1990 U.S. Census Summary Tape Files. A WWW client with forms capability is required.
