Yes. There is a site that provides data, state by state, county by county
for 1790-1970. Use the US Historical Documents Browser at

According to the text on the site:

"Data for this site originate in ICPSR study number 0003, 'Historical
Demographic, Economic and Social Data: The United States,
1790-1970.' The data were collected, keypunched and error checked by ICPSR
staff under a grants from the National Science
 Foundation. The selection of data to be included in the data set was
carried out under guidelines developed by the American Historical
Association. Data sources for the complete data set include US Decennial
Censuses and sources such as the US Department of
Agriculture, and the National Council of Churches of Christ of the United
Happy data hunting,

Subject: 1820 Census Totals by County needed!

Oh-boy,Oh-boy,Oh-boy! Am I excited! Am I frustrated! Yes.

My research for a history of the Washington County Poor House has led me to
some exciting areas of investigation. But I need to know the total
population count for each county according to the 1820 Census. Can anyone
tell me of a site on-line where I might find this? Or does anyone have that
information to share? I am living in the middle of the Hill Country in
central Texas and it is hard to get to census summaries. Besides...now that
I am onto this idea ... well, I'm impatient! (red face)

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
