- On December 29, 1845, Texas became the 28th state in the United States. As a result, it did not participate in any prior U.S. Census and populations earlier than 1850 are not
included on this page.
- The chart only shows data from each census (1850 Census, 1860 Census, 1870 Census, etc.). It does not include population estimats for the intercensal years such as 1861, 1862, etc.
- If the population was not reported, then no data is shown for that census year. A population may not have been reported if a county did not exist
or if the county was abandoned at the time of the census.
- Lack of a visible bar can occur when a bar is less than one pixel in height.
