Prior to statehood, in the 1860 census what is now present-day Colorado lay in four territorial jurisdictions, three of which are extant: Kansas Territory, Nebraska Territory, and New Mexico Territory. The Colorado area of Utah Territory was unsettled by whites and was not enumerated in 1860. Since there are numerous Park/e/s listings in both Kansas and Nebraska Territories in 1860, those will be included here.
- 1870—1940 federal censuses extant for all counties except for 1890.
