State censuses are census records that were taken at the state-level rather than at the federal.

State censuses can even serve as substitutes for missing federal censuses.

Territorial censuses were taken by the federal government to count the population in federal territories.

The Hawaii State Archives also has two "census files," 1840 to 1866 and 1847 to 1866, which contain miscellaneous records such as school censuses, population lists, and vital record summaries.

=== Why use a census?  ===
 
 
 
A well-indexed census is one of the easiest ways to locate where an ancestor's family lived and when they lived there. You can also use censuses to follow the changes in a family over time, and identify neighbors. These and other clues provided by censuses are important because they help find additional kinds of records about the family.
