Census 2000 Demographic Profiles Select a state - then enter a place name within the state.  If you enter part of a place name (such as Ama for Amarillo) the search will bring up all places in Texas with the letters "ama" anywhere in the name (such as the Alabama-Coushatta Reservation.  Entering an asterisk (*) will give every place name in the selected state.  For Texas the file is about 192k and may take a while to download - but then you can see all of the places in Texas which were counted in the 2000 Census (from Abbott city, Texas to Zuehl CDP, Texas).  Note:  you must have Adobe Acrobat™ software to access these files (.pdf format).  These files are very detailed and are available much sooner - and much, much easier than similar files for past censuses.
