US Economic Census. Starting date

When did it start?

"The economic census has been taken as an integrated program at 5-year intervals since 1967 and before that for 1954, 1958, and 1963. Prior to that time, individual components of the economic census were taken separately at varying intervals...

Retail and wholesale trade and construction industries were added in 1930, as were some service trades in 1933. Construction, manufacturing, and the other business censuses were suspended during World War II."
