  • Abstract:
    The census of transportation, together with the censuses of business, manufactures, and mineral industries, comprise the economic census program of the Bureau of the Census. This program is required by law under Title 13 of the United States Code, sections 131 and 224. The present economic census collects statistics for the year 1963. The next such census will cover the year 1967 and future censuses are scheduled for 5- year intervals after that year. A large segment of transportation data is available from regulatory bodies, other government agencies, and private organizations. For that reason, the statutory provisions concerning the census of transportation-directed the Bureau to collect the kinds of data that were not publicly available from other sources. The objective was to avoid duplication and fill important gaps in transportation information. The 1963 Census of Transportation is the first census of this type to be taken in the United States. The present census was taken under four separate surveys-Passenger Transportation, Truck Inventory and Use, Commodity Transportation, and Motor Carrier. The first three surveys were taken on a sample basis; the motor carrier survey was taken partly by sample and partly by a complete census (the universe of bus carriers was enumerated). These four transportation surveys are independent of each other and the results are published in four distinct series of reports. Generally, the data are published initially in preliminary or advance reports and later issued in a bound volume. A probability sample of motor truck licenses was drawn in each of the 50 States and the District of Columbia to describe the characteristics and uses of the Nation's truck resources. Results are published in separate advance reports for each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, the 9 geographic divisions, and the United States as a whole. Final results are contained in volume 2 of the 1963 Census of Transportation. This excerpt gives the summary for Idaho.
  • Content Notes:
    The original 1965 print publication included data tables and summary information for the United States as a whole, and each state, in a single print volume of nearly 700 pages. When the Census made this publication available online as PDFs, they divided the full report into individual State summaries. To each of these summaries Census added the same cover, front matter, and appendices. Readers may notice that the page numbers of the summaries are not sequential. These page numbers refer to the original print edition. The National Transportation Library is sharing these PDFs just as Census created them.
