The Census Bureau is not able to locate missing persons, or provide recent information on individuals. In keeping with the Census Bureau's commitment to confidentiality, the Census Bureau information collected in the Decennial Census of Population and Housing on individuals does not become available to the public until after 72 years. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
