You can use the census.gov site and specify the census and the state. Many cities are specified as major urban areas.

For the 1900 census, use the database Social Explorer (you can find it on our list of databases here: http://info.lib.uh.edu/edbs/list/S). 

Narrow your search by doing the following:

  1. Click Reports
  2. Choose the Census year (1900)
  3. Geographic Type - click State and/or County, then click add.
  4. Add table selections - population by race.
  5. Download files to Excel spreadsheet if needed.
