Rhode Island Census Records

Rhode Island was one of the original thirteen colonies organized into a state. It’s county structure has remained the same since it’s colonial days, allowing each of the counties to have been enumerated every 10 years since 1790. Rhode Island is also unique in that it has also performed state enumerations between 1865 and 1935. Unfortunately, one of the most pivotal census, the 1895 (because it would help close the gap on information lost from the 1890 federal census) is missing. Only the 1915 Rhode Island state census has been placed online and is available within the county links below.

There were several colonial census taken in Rhode Island prior to its establishment as a state. Of those, only the 1774 census appears to have been placed online.
