Census of Population and Housing, 2000 [United States]: State Legislative District Summary File, 100-percent (ICPSR 22520)
Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Commerce. Bureau of the Census
This data collection contains information compiled from the questions asked of all people and every housing unit enumerated in Census 2000. The questions cover sex, age, race, Hispanic or Latino origin, type of living quarters (household/group quarters), household relationship, housing unit vacancy status, and housing unit tenure (owner/renter). With subject content identical to that provided in Summary File 1, the information is presented in 286 tables which are tabulated for every upper and lower chamber state legislative district and smaller geographic units within the districts: counties, county subdivisions, places, consolidated cities, and American Indian Areas/Alaska Native Areas/Hawaiian Home Lands. There is one variable per table cell, plus additional variables with geographic information, which are recorded in 2,080 data files, 40 for each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
The collection is supplied in 54 ZIP archives. There is an archive for each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, and for the convenience of those who need all of the data, a separate ZIP archive with all 2,080 data files. The codebook and other documentation constitute the last ZIP archive.
These data are freely available.
