Public Law 94-171 Summary File (Redistricting Data)

This file contains summary population counts for two universes, total population and population 18 years and over. The data were derived from the basic 100-percent questions asked on all census questionnaires.


Tract-to-Tract Comparability File

Comparability Files are intended to generate comparable estimates of selected demographic, socio-economic, and housing variables across decennial censuses. Due to changes in population and street patterns, some census tract boundaries are adjusted with each census. Comparability files are the only source of census data that normalize changes in tract boundaries from one census to the next. The State Data Center (SDC) has prepared two separate comparability files:
