The US Constitution requires that a federal census be conducted every ten years; the federal census has been conducted since 1790. The records from 1790-1950 are made publicly available by the US National Archives; census records for later years are inaccessible for privacy reasons. (In addition to the federal censuses, Maine also conducted its own special census in 1837.)

The USGenWeb Census Project is undertaking the task of transcribing the census data from every available Federal census and making it available on the web. For Aroostook County, they currently have the censuses from 1790 to 1850.
