I guess there were (but dont' think they have it stored online now - if anything, this is paid service)...

Have you tried asking that question at the Central Statistical Office in Poland (where census records are archived)? They have a website and email address and the site can be viewed in English as well as Polish:

stat.gov.pl/english/index.htm

Central Statistical Office in Poland

But they have informations about economy, transport, wages etc. not about individuals.

Is it still in use?

Looks like temporarily It's not working.

That place is supposed to have older archival records (possibly very early) for the parts of Galicia that were returned to Southern Poland, but try also here:

Go to this website
archiwa.gov.pl/?CIDA=43
in English version see "data bases" like SEZAM, ELA or PRADZIAD.
In the XIXth century there was census called "kataster galicyjski" so try with it. But you won't have all this data there, only information what it was about and what villages concerned. In order to see it you would have to visit this State Archive in Krakow.
