Census of Population and Housing, 2000 [United States]: Summary File 2, Final National (ICPSR 13403)
Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Commerce. Bureau of the Census
Summary File 2 contains 100-percent United States decennial Census data, which is the information compiled from the questions asked of all people and about every housing unit. The Final National component of Summary File 2 describes the entire United States. Population items include sex, age, race, Hispanic or Latino origin, household relationship, and group quarters occupancy. Housing items include occupancy status, vacancy status, and tenure (owner-occupied or renter-occupied). The 100-percent data are presented in 36 population tables ("PCT") and 11 housing tables ("HCT") down to the census tract level. Each table is iterated for 250 population groups: the total population, 132 race groups, 78 American Indian and Alaska Native tribe categories (reflecting 39 individual tribes), and 39 Hispanic or Latino groups. The presentation of tables for any of the 250 population groups is subject to a population threshold of 100 or more people -- that is, if there were fewer than 100 people in a specific population group in a specific geographic area, their population and housing characteristics data are not available for that geographic area.
These data are freely available.

Date of Collection:
Universe: All persons in housing units in United States and the District of Columbia in 2000.
Data Types: census/enumeration data
Data Collection Notes:
The data are provided in four segments (files) per iteration. These segments are PCT1-PCT4, PCT5-PCT19, PCT20-PCT36, and HCT1-HCT11. The iterations are Parts 1-250, the Geographic Header file is Part 251. The Geographic Header file is in fixed-format ASCII and the Table files are in comma-delimited ASCII format. The Geographic Header file has 85 variables, Segment 01 has 224 variables, Segment 02 has 240 variables, Segment 03 has 179 variables, and Segment 04 has 141 variables. When all the segments are merged, there are 849 variables.
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
- Created variable labels and/or value labels.
