  • Abstract:
    The census of transportation, together with the censuses of retail and wholesale trade, selected service industries, manufactures, mineral industries, and construction 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 1972. Future censuses are scheduled by law for 5-year intervals. A large segment of transportation data is available from regulatory and 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 census of transportation was undertaken for the first time on a national basis in 1963 and again in 1967. The 1972 census was taken under three separate surveys-National Travel, Truck Inventory and Use, and Commodity Transportation, each on a sample basis. The surveys are independent of each other and the results are published in three distinct series of reports. a. 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 1972 Census of Transportation. This excerpt gives the summary for Rhode Island.
  • 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.
