"I went to the website for the census, and notice there are only 12 states there. Which one is missing other than Delaware? Is it New Jersey? Am I correct that the censuses for those states for 1790 are missing?"

It seems you've already figured it out since you re-posted, but I think what happened is that you clicked on the link to send a message to all the group members and unfortunately that seems to send an email message but otherwise the message does not show up on the group genealogywise page. I deactivated this ability (or at least I think I did) when I set up the new Cole group, so that problem shouldn't occur again. I'm glad you figured it out and posted the info to the discussions page. Glad to have you join us in the Cole group.
